Producer Notes

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... More »

Very dark/purple robe; hot and spicey on the nose after being decanted 6 hours; sweet on the palate with notes of red cherries very pronounced and cinnamon; still has a way to go

Even better, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin was smoking good, with awesome herbes de Provence, pepper, garrigue and sweet Grenache-driven fruit. Full-bodied and rich, with sweet tannin, I loved it, and would plan on drinking bottles over the coming couple of years as well. One of the benchmark estates in the Rhone Valley, Domaine de la Janasse is run by the talented brother/sister pair of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon. Located in the northeastern portion of the region, near Courthezon, they produce an incredible range of wines, from their Vin de Pays, to their Cotes du Rones and world-class Chateauneuf du Papes, all of which are noteworthy. For this tasting, we started with the 1990s and went up through their 2007s. At this point, the '98s through the 2004s are all in varying degrees of full maturity, and drinking brilliantly. In addition, it's also worth pointing out that these wines have the fruit and texture to dish out immense pleasure in their youth, so don't be afraid to crack these new releases either. Both of the 1999s were drinking beautifully, and are up near the top of the vintage. Moving to the 2000s, I found that from this point forward, the wines started to show more freshness and vibrancy. Looking specifically at this vintage, these are still mature wines, yet they're drinking beautifully. Importer: Eric Solomon, European Selections, Charlotte, NC; tel. (704) 358-1565 Importer(s):

Sweet nose, rich, grenache at its best. Can last many more years.

I am a Janasse fan but this bottle was only ok compared to many others I've had. Very berry and almost overly so. Nose was complex but the wine itself seemed to be a bit less so. Still quite good but not the normal level I expect from Janasse.

My recent Janasse-a-thon hit some seriously turbulence in the rough 'n tumble ?03 vintage as this heady, amped up customer was a bit too untamed for its own good. Frankly dark and alcoholic, filled w/ brandy soaked plum, caramel coated fig and cocoa ganache notes that are mouth-filling, sweet w/ ripe tannin but a bit flaccid and clumsy to really hit the spot. An enjoyably unbridled ride, but certainly one that could use a bit more poise (& is sure to offend those that loathe the vintage)

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
