Bold and potent but not devoid of sophistication. Aroma of plum, chocolate, liquorice, oak, and spice. Ripe dark fruit and chocolate dominate the palette with a touch of pepper. Smooth tannins and long finish. This has both power and finesse and can be paired with chocolate desert.

Not one of my favorite vintages of Janasse. I felt this was a bit flabby and one dimensional. Just, not very interesting and almost came across a touch, cloying? That being said, there is a lot of quality fruit here and some people while probably love the huge core of red and blue fruits.

Typical nose of licorice. Very powerful, lot of spices and long finish. Great for an “ordinary” chateauneuf.

Brambles, garrigue. Lovely already. 2015 is a vintage to go deep on CdP.

Overwhelmed by the vast selection and needing to choose quickly before the store closed, I went for something I know. To be fair, I didn’t give this much time to open but I still enjoyed it and can see its potential as I’ve had prior vintages that have been great. Medium tannins, medium acid though that seems a bit cloyed by the alcohol. Raisins, raspberries, spices - the typical Grenache profile shines - light and soft on the palate.
