2003 Domaine Janasse "Chaupin" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1058024 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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. (JD)  (8/ 2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

 Lilting, perfumy style, with alluring violet, raspberry, black cherry and plum notes that glide across the palate. This gains intensity through the finish, picking up the vintage's tarry aspect, yet stays remarkably fresh and Burgundian in style. Best from 2006 through 2020.  (10/ 2005)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Ruby-red. Powerfully scented nose offers ripe red and dark berry aromas along with dried flowers and smoky minerals. Weighty cherry and red berry flavors show very good concentration and completely coat the palate. A hint of warmth arrives on the finish, which is strikingly sweet and long. This wine appears to be evolving quickly and is drinking well right now.  (12/ 2008)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
