Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin 2015
COLLECTORS! And, really, any human who lives and breathes --- TODAY is the day. 2015 (and ‘16) Chateauneuf-du-Papes are already being considered some of the greatest ever made, so to have stumbled on a small parcel of 96-POINT JANASSE “Chaupin” (100+ year old vines!!) at anything like this price is simply…breathtaking!! This also has two 95-point scores from Wine Spectator and Jeb Dunnuck!
Our love for Chateauneuf (and Janasse, especially) is deep, far, and oh-so wide. In vintages like this, they deliver so much instant pleasure that it almost makes us feel guilty. When you can drink it at this price, though...EGADS! A MUST for serious old-vine Grenache lovers!!
And speaking of love...we are head over heels. 96 points seems stingy, honestly, because when you get a whiff/sip of this magical ambrosia and experience the purity, depth and concentration trapped in 750 milliliters, you will be very close to experiencing vinous ecstasy. So wonderfully mouthcoating, with intense, almost incense-like fruit and spice: black cherry, cassis, sweet herbs, licorice, rosemary, dark cocoa powder, a touch of clove...so fantastic. A special occasion wine --- at this price, it’s a MUST. While it lasts, that is!!
