2006 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1042921 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A bigger, richer wine than the Chaupin (which is normal), the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes comes from the La Janasse and La Crau lieux-dits, and is 80% Grenache and the balance Syrah and Mourvèdre; the Grenache is raised in foudres and demi-muids, and the Syrah and Mourvèdre are raised in small barrels. Full-bodied, rich, decadent and unctuous on the palate, this beauty gives up fabulous notes of dark fruits, dusty soil, licorice, roasted herbs and toasted spice. It needs a short decant if drinking anytime soon, and will continue drinking nicely through 2026. (JD) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre. Opaque purple. Highly alluring, expansive bouquet of blueberry, boysenberry, licorice and smoky Indian spices. Broad, sweet and inviting on the palate, offering weighty dark berry compote flavors and complicating notes of truffle, anise and candied lavender. The spiciness repeats strongly on the finish, which is sappy and wonderfully long. These vines are between 80 and 100 years of age. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2009)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Really juicy and vivid, with blueberry, boysenberry and raspberry fruit laced with sweet spice, tobacco and fruitcake notes. The long, racy finish has a great refreshing edge and solid, buried grip. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2008)
