Dom de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes CDP 2014 1500ml Red
A step up, with additional richness and depth, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes includes more Mourvèdre than normal, as Christophe wanted to add additional structure. It offers classic notes of black currants, kirsch, licorice and cured meats in a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated style. Possessing ripe tannin, a silky, elegant style and outstanding length, it too is ideal for drinking anytime over the coming decade. Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker Wine Avocate, Oct 2016.
Wine Rating: 92/100
The estate’s flagship cuvée, always at the top of international rankings. The robe is dark with purple reflections. On the nose, the still discreet aromas of crushed black fruits and garrigue are just waiting to melt into a noble and fresh substance, to reveal finesse and elegance on the palate.
Drink within 10 to 25 years after bottling.
