Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 99

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is considered by many observers in Chateauneuf du Pape to be the wine of the vintage, and it can most certainly be counted among the finest. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre tipping the scales at 15.5% natural alcohol (which is slightly less than the Chaupin), the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice. The layered, full-bodied mouthfeel displays no heat, but the wine has massive concentration and a silky, smooth finish. Because of the low acidity in the 2009s, and sweet tannins, this has turned out to be a glorious example of Chateauneuf du Pape to drink over the next two decades.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

(85% grenache, with mourvedre and syrah): Deep, bright-rimmed ruby. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet displays scents of black and blue fruits, incense and anise, with bright overlay of smoky minerality. Rich as well as vibrant, with impressive depth and energy to its blackberry and cherry compote flavors. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent clarity and resonating spiciness.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Very tightly wound, with cassis, black licorice and plum sauce notes held in check by velvety but copious tannins. Plenty of spice, graphite and tar flesh out the finish, which is racy and very long, with a great buried black tea note. Should cruise in the cellar.

Dark, big, bold and brawny. This seems to be a rugby player throwing its muscles around. Pretty impressive really! Lots of sweet spice and the alcohol is (just) kept in check. In this instance there is enough fruit in the middle. Some life and real vitality. Good stuff. Long.

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.
