Châteauneuf Du Pape, Southern Rhône

Domaine de la Janasse

Chaupin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2020

So young & very closed upon opening.
After 6h breathing this opens up, showing dusty blue & red fruit, fresh, juicy. But there’s also fresh herbs, Lavendel, pomegranate freshness and a pinch of orange peel spiciness. There’s also some mocha, dark chocolate. So enticing!
Amazing freshness & poise on the palate , tannins so polished & juicy, fresh & with great flow. But the depth & precision here are amazing! Wow! This is stunning. So complex & sophisticated but so drinkable at the same time.
What a wine!

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

Pretty, rich dark fruits. Blueberry pie, bramble berry, maybe a touch stewed plums. Classic Rhone garrigue... Violets, wet stone, a unique soapy floral note. Palate reveals fresh red cherry, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry - this is like a farmers market berry stand. Layered with a touch of almound pastry. Clean finish with minerality and herbs. So solid and a great QPR from a classic producer. — 14 hours ago

Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2006

2006 vintage. Yo ho yo ho mateys! Not the greatest SoRhô vintage but a fairly decent producer aboard. Overt fruit influence gonzo. Dark and dense with plenty of years on the plank. Spicy finish with a solid dose of tannins afoot. Bigger body than anticipated. Definitely not a lean machine at this point and closer to medium-hevvy bod. Think Deep Purple In Rock vs Machine Head. If you know, you know. Hope that helped. Maybe not. Regardless, phenomenal juice and worth a visit/voyage down the ole heavy metal pipeline. Watch out for those Jon Lord organ interludes. Aarrgh! 3.15.23. — 10 days ago

@Severn Goodwin If you’ve got multiple bottles, wait till it warms up and serve one in the next few months with grilled veggies/meats fare. Crack another in 5 years and the last one in 2035 or so.

The following year 2007 was great in CdP. Waiting for an appropriate moment to open the Beaucastel Homage from 2007 which should be magnificent.


@Bob McDonald If you’re that disciplined (and it would seem you’re guilty), rock on and lay down the love notes. Enjoy.

[Tasted on March 24, 2023 at etc. restaurant in Nashville]

Raspberry and cherry fruit, with tea and stony minerality and a saline note on the finish. Floral wine with deep fruit flavors and mineral driven.

Domaine de Beaurenard (Paul Coulon et Fils)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2019

Blend of about 2/3 Grenache, with Syrah, Mourvèdre, and a mix of permitted varieties. Medium Ruby with aromas of ripe black fruits and earthy pepper spice. On the palate complex rich flavors of cherry and blackberry, with oak, leather, cacao and earthy spice. Full body, well balanced, fine tannins, long finish, perfect now but will continue to age. Outstanding! — a month ago
