The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin is all Grenache, 40% whole cluster, aged in two-thirds foudre and one-third demi-muids and drawn exclusively from sandy sites. It showcases incredibly lush, silky fruit. Raspberries and cherries of incredible purity add hints of chocolate on the long finish but never seem heavy or warm.

"The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin is another elegant, seamless example of this cuvée that shines for its complexity and length. Black raspberries, black cherries, dried flowers, incense, and spice note all emerge from this incredibly pretty, nuanced and silky beauty. With polished tannin and solid length, it's going to keep for 10-15 years. It lacks the depth of a truly great year but is a fabulous wine that just sings of Grenache."
95 Wine Spectator
"Pretty, with cassis and warm raspberry puree notes carried by silky but persistent structure, while rooibos tea, blood orange and incense accents fill in the background. The streamlined finish pulls everything together, letting the silky, perfumy feel sail on. Best from 2020 through 2040.- J.M."

This has been a vintage that Rhone buyers have been waiting for as conditions were outstanding which resulted in one of the best vintages in the last several years! In fact, the Wine Spectator issued a 94-97 point score for the vintage overall! To compare, the 2010 vintage scored 98 Points and the legendary 1998 vintage score 97 Points!
The 1998's and 2010's are long gone for the most part ... but the 2015's are available now!
Domaine Janasse is one of the top estates in the Rhone Valley. Jeb Dunnuck perhaps said it best:
"One of the finest run estates in all of Châteauneuf du Pape is Domaine de la Janasse, which is managed today by the brother and sister pair of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon. Looking at the 2014 and 2015 releases, both lean towards the more finesse-driven end of the spectrum, with Pinot Noir-like textures and less overt concentration than past vintages. That’s certainly expected in a vintage like 2014, but is surprising in a vintage like 2015. While the estate’s reds, both Châteauneuf du Papes and Côtes du Rhône, are well known, don’t make the mistake of missing their whites, as these are some of the most impressive and age-worthy wines in just about every vintage." - Jeb Dunnuck - Robert Parker's the Wine Advocate
The Chaupin from Janasse is 100% Grenache. The oldest vines were planted in 1912. It's one of the most requested wines from their portfolio for good reason. It has consistently earned incredible press and based on its price point, is one of the first wines collectors look to grab.
The 2015 vintage is certainly no exception. Grab it while it lasts today!
