(80% grenache, with mourvedre, syrah and cinsault): Dark ruby. Exotically perfumed, expressive scents of candied cherry, blackberry and spicecake, with notes of anise and rose adding complexity. Shows deeper cassis and blueberry flavors on the palate, along with a zesty mineral quality. Fine-grained tannins add shape and grip to the very long, sappy, focused finish. This wine has gained vivacity since I saw it last year.

About This Producer


Up until 1973, patriarch and proprietor Aime Sabon sold the entire production of this estate to cooperatives. In 1991, his son Christophe took over the running of the Domaine La Janasse, named after a family camp in Courthezon. The grapes that go into the "Cuvee Chaupin" come from a parcel of vines planted in 1912 and produce the pure, graceful, yet opulent and firmly structured wines for which the domaine has become renowned. Roughly a quarter of these wines are AOC Chateauneuf du Pape.
