 2011 Domaine La Janasse 'Vielles Vignes' Chateauneuf-du-Pape

If you crave the very best of this storied town in the Rhône, here's a great candidate to add to your holdings, at the lowest price on the West Coast.

"Dark fruit liqueur, star anise, cinnamon and licorice aromas are sharpened by a lively mineral quality and a touch of white pepper. Sappy, sweet and incisive, with a suave blend of power and vivacity to its blackcurrant and mulberry flavors. Juicy acidity gives focus to the finish, which features velvety tannins, a touch of smokiness and outstanding energy." - Vinous The Wine Advocate called it "a candidate for the wine of the vintage... Exhibiting gorgeous black fruits, spice-box, toast, licorice and roasted meat-like qualities on the nose, it is full-bodied, concentrated and layered on the palate, with loads of texture, yet delivers no weight, heat, or ever puts a foot wrong."

Domaine de la Janasse, founded in 1967, is undoubtedly one of the top 5 producers in all of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Owners Isabelle and Christophe Sabon are both trained enologists, schooled in Beaune and Toulouse, respectively, and they run Janasse with precision and care. Their Vieilles Vignes bottling is special because it's made from vines that are between 60 and 100+ years of age, resulting in fathomless concentration.

"Domaine de la Janasse is one of the great winemaking estates of not only France, but of the world." - The Wine Advocate

There's a recurring theme in the tasting notes on these wines: a streak of black fruit, a Janasse signature. Blackberry, boysenberry, and cassis are all out in force in these beautiful Châteauneufs, typically comprised of primarily old-vine Grenache.
