    June 3, 2019 - Janasse's 2012 Châteauneuf is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre and 2% Cinsault. Highly aromatic, it is effusive of dark bramble fruits, Provençal herbs, Asian spices, loamy earth and licorice. Full-bodied, fresh, seamlessly alcoholic (14.5%), softly oaked and with medium sweet tannins, it delivers flavors mirroring the nose. Dense on the mid-palate and lengthy on the back end, this is a Châteauneuf that still has plenty of life left. Drink now-2027.

    April 7, 2018 - Fantastic. Strawberry jam. Wish I had more bottles.

    February 12, 2018 - A one dimensional disappointment. 80% declined on 2nd day. Strictly a pop and pour within the first few hours only. I rate it 60 on the 2nd day.

    April 30, 2017 - No formal notes, seemed a bit one-dimensional and heavier than the 14.5% shown. Lots of fruit, licorice on the finish. Give my other two some time

    April 14, 2017 - Very pretty floral nose with notes of sweet kirsch cherry and garrigue spices. Quite ripe and juicy with delicious flavors that echo the nose plus hints of raspberry liqueur and chalky minerals. Really a soft, silky texture but with good acidity and structure underneath. Finishes quite grippy and tangy with good complex garrigue spice and a mouth-watering quality. A little on the ripe side for me but the wine is very tasty and gets away with it.
