Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin is another knockout vintage for this cuvee, and at present, it's drinking the best of the mature vintages. Still deep ruby/purple, it has classic kirsch liqueur, sappy herbs, white pepper and licorice to go with a full-bodied, beautifully textured profile on the palate that carries awesome fruit, notable freshness and plenty of length. Drink it through 2020.

($45) Bright red-ruby. Very rich aromas of roasted red fruits, leather and smoke. Fat, sweet and impressively rich; silky and quite deep. A very suave, very long wine with smooth but mounting tannins. A superb showing today, even if this wine from north-facing vines on "cool" soil is not quite as pinot-like as usual.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Supple and ripe, it's balanced between the green olive paste, iron, mineral, licorice, black fruit, smoke and roasted meat notes that render this full-bodied wine particularly interesting. The tough, burning finish needs time to settle down.

Seemed cooked. Totally devoid of fruit on the nose. Dried fruit and heavy tannin on the palate. Will not score.

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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
