2011 Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape "Chaupin"

Goosebumps...One of my favorite Chateauneufs every single year. Coming from a cooler, sandy terroir in the northeastern part of the appellation. 100% Grenache from vines planted in 1912. Such a gorgeous nose with black and red fruits, licorice, orange peel, soy sauce and a tingling minerality. Gorgeous all around, with a fine dichotomy of rich and ethereal, exotic and familiar, with such interesting stony minerality compacting the fruit within all angles.
