Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes 2009, 750ml (WA99) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes

750ml

Vintage: 2009
Region: France--Rhone--Chateauneuf du Pape
Appellation: Chateauneuf du Pape

WA99
Rated 99 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `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.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate:`This impeccably run estate, in the capable hands of Christophe Sabon, his sister Isabelle, and their father, is one of the superstars of the southern Rhone Valley. Over the last 12-15 years, the quality of the wines has gone from strength to strength, with brilliant wines being produced in all price categories. They make sumptuous, complex, world-class red, white and rose Cotes du Rhones, and year-in and year-out, their Chateauneuf du Papes are among the top three or four wines of the vintage. Tasting two great vintages (2009 and 2010) from the Sabons was one of the most thrilling tastings I have had this year. My tasting began with some unbelievable Cotes du Rhones.`
