    Bright crimson. Sweet and heady. Rather charming in a rose-scented, ripe red-fruited way. Lots of alcohol but lots of flavour too. Very concentrated and sweet and the tannins are not intrusive.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

    Densely textured and sappy in feel, with bright, engaging fruit and red and black currant, raspberry and blackberry notes all coursing along, pushed by a graphite spine and backed by a fruitcake- and roasted apple wood-filled finish. Still tight, this will need some cellaring.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

    Glass-staining ruby. Heady scents of raspberry liqueur, cherry-cola, Asian spices and potpourri, with a bright mineral overtone. Juicy, incisive and pure, offering vibrant black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a suave spicecake nuance. Completely stains the palate while showing superb energy and clarity. The gently tannic finish refuses to let go and strongly echoes the raspberry and floral notes.

    The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin rivals the 2007 Chaupin (to date the best Chaupin I have yet tasted). Made from 100% Grenache (3/4 destemmed), it boasts a dense black/purple color as well as unbelievable notes of raspberries, black cherries, licorice, truffles, camphor, forest floor and garrigue. This wine is stunningly concentrated, incredibly noble, precise and expansive on the palate with mouth-saturating intensity, glycerin and extract. It is an amazing example of impeccably grown old vine Grenache translated into a natural yet full-throttle red.

  • 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.
