2015 Domaine de la Janasse "Tradition" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1320292 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Blended from six different lieux-dits, it's roughly 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. The result features bright raspberry fruit, plenty of weight and richness, a supple, velvety mouthfeel and a touch of chocolate (but notably no heat) on the finish. (JC)  (10/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

 Ripe and focused, with lively plum, raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes that race along nicely, flecked with anise and fruitcake accents. A flash of shiso leaf adds life and cut to the finish, while the fruit streams through. Best from 2018 through 2030.  (10/2017)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The standard blend of mostly 75% Grenache blended with 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a medium ruby color and notes of black cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers, and potpourri. Fine, elegant and seamless, with beautiful tannin quality, it's a classic, elegant 2015 to drink over the coming decade or more. (JebDunnuck.com)  (10/2017)

90-92 points Vinous

 made with 30 percent whole clusters and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and barriques) Bright violet. Vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry scents, along with hints of candied lavender and anise. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering energetic cherry and red berry flavors that become spicier and deeper with air. Finishes vibrant, sweet and quite long, featuring a resonating raspberry note and a hint of fine-grained tannins that sneaks in slowly.  (3/2017)

91 points James Suckling

 Rosehip, black tea, licorice and wild raspberry fruits adorn the nose, leading to a palate that is mapped out on ripe, smooth-rendered tannins and a red plum fruit core. Drink now.(NS)  (8/2017)

Never shy on the fruit side, the 2015 shows remarkable restraint, pushing more towards a beautifully balanced style. Fruit is still quite present but it is of the freshest variety, the ripest you find at your local farmer's market but not pushing sur-maturity. Harmonious tannins on the finish make this appealing now but great for short term cellaring.

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
