    July 15, 2018 - The wine was quite closed at first, but it opened up a lot and revealed its real qualities after 2 hours of decanting.

    This full-bodied and fruity wine is stylistically somehow influenced by the New World, but in a fairly good sense of the word. The wine is dense and thick on the palate, and there is some feel of heat and sweetness, but this is balanced by the lively acidity and the tannic structure. The aroma and flavor palette of the wine is surprisingly multidimensional, providing notes of blackberry, ripe red fruits, smoke and tobacco.

    This is an excellent Châteauneuf-du-Pape from a superb vintage, with lots of cellaring potential and many years ahead. In fact, the wine has certainly not reached its peak yet. If you want to enjoy it now, I would recommend to decant it for at least 2 hours.

    June 22, 2018 - On opening a bin nose with lots of sunwarm raspberries, violets, mineral and salmiac powder. After a few hours the fruit has turned 360 to dark fruit with plums and blackberries. Beautiful and interesting wine. Still young!

    March 31, 2018 - The 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape is very aromatic on first opening and is charged with luscious dark fruits on the palate. Colour is deep, dark red and the body is full and plush. Despite its opulence, the wine is balanced, nicely structured and gains in complexity with air time. The mid-palate has a slightly bitter note, but nothing too overpowering. There are enjoyable tannins to pack the cheeks, acidity is medium and the mouth-feel is very pleasing; finish is medium-long. This probably has quite a few years before it reaches its peak, but it's highly enjoyable now given an hour or two in the decanter. Next day, it's even better. Should hold good and even improve over another 8 years.

    March 20, 2018 - Monthly Tuesday group "The Dead Sparrow" #027 Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010 (By JdB): This bottle was not a 100% correct. In the bouquet dark berries, celery and medicine. On the palate chocolate, ripe dark berries, licorice, some red berries as well, but overall the wine was just very slightly corked. No score.
