    July 22, 2014 - So they say that the 2008 CDP's are not long-term agers, well that maybe true but these definitely benefit from some bottled time. gorgeous earthy floral nose with a little bit of mushroom funk that leads into a super smooth dark berry palate. fantastic!

    May 18, 2014 - Dark purplish red in color. It has a dusty, chalky, raspberry ganache aroma, that doesn't jump from the glass, but it's in there. In the mouth, it gets a liquored stickiness that finishes with a tight dryness. Its good now if you are still cerebral, otherwise, save it for another day.

    December 29, 2013 - - Aromas of black olive. It's lacking fruit and has flavours of black currant. Smooth texture with a short finish.

    (Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes) This cuvée is 70% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre, with 10% Syrah, the vines aged 80-100 years. Ripe, with smoky cherry fruit. A good supple quality, perhaps a touch more savoury than the other wines here. A good grip and structure to it, lots of tannins, and a less confit style of fruit here too. Still a very big wine though, with a very full-on character. Good.
