"Deeper colored, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Chaupin comes mostly from the Chaupoin lieu-dit yet always has small parts from La Janasse and a sandy part of the La Crau lieu-dit. Blackberries, ground herbs, graphite, and new leather notes all emerge from this concentrated, rich, powerful wine that stays tight, focused, and elegant on the palate. It's a killer wine, but it's going to need time."

"The all-Grenache 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin is sourced from sandy soils and ages in a combination of foudres and demi-muids. It shows more structure than the regular cuvée, supporting the ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit with bright acids and velvety tannins. Full-bodied and rich, it's long, picking up hints of licorice on the finish."

Cuvee Chaupin is one of the more premium cuvees from Janasse and is produced with 100% Grenache from all 100+ year old vines! Part of the fruit even comes from the legendary la Crau vineyard site, which has sandy soil that is perfectly suited to the elegant and complex Grenache fruit.
The result is a full-bodied blend that has a wonderfully delineated fruit, complex secondary notes and remarkable aromatics!
