Just Arrived 2016 Chateauneuf-du Pape Arrivals

Two from the Sabons of Janasse
December 7, 2018


2016 Domaine Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes "gives up more cassis, tapenade, underbrush, cured meats, and earth, and it’s a slightly more dense, backward wine compared to the Chaupin. Full-bodied and beautifully concentrated, with tons of structure, it stays fresh and elegant, has sweet tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It's an incredible, borderline perfect wine from this estate that will keep for two decades or more.” – Jeb Dunnuck  limited $99 Net


2016 Clos St. Antonin Chateauneuf du Pape "the finest wine to date from this young estate (although it's made from one of the finest winemakers out there) ... 100% Grenache sourced all from the sandy parts of the La Crau and Font du Loup lieux-dits. It got more than a few wows in the notes and boasts a medium ruby color, heavenly notes of framboise, crushed flowers, and spice, full body, ultra-fine tannins, and an insane mix of power and elegance that's hard to describe. It's going to knock your socks off over the coming 15+ years." $55; Mixed Case, 49.5; Case, 46.75
