The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is black purple as well, but slightly more restrained and lower in alcohol, with more noticeable tannins and acidity. Nevertheless, this is still a phenomenally concentrated wine, with notes of barbecue spices, blackberry and black currant fruit, smoked herbs, charcoal, incense and an intense lavender note. The tannins kick in following the full-bodied, massive mouthfeel, as well as the acidity. This wine will need to be forgotten for 8-10 years, which is somewhat atypical for a Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape. It can be consumed over the following three-plus decades. An absolutely brilliant wine, as are all of these in the Janasse portfolio. Robert Parker

2010. Used to buy this for 12 dollars a bottle before RP ruined it . Still an outstanding wine for ten times the price.

Incredible bottle of wine one. Parker rated 100 and I concur. I scored its 9.8 because it's still a baby. Decanted 4 hours prior to dinner. Paired with Foie Gras Torchon. Deep blackberry and black currant fruit was perfect match for Foie. Amazing wine! Thank God I have 2 left!!

Perfect CDP. Lavender and blackberries to the nose. Tannins are noticeable but add to the body of this wine.
