Lot #313. Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2009

Description: Consists of 7 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 99 WA.
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is considered by many observers in Chateauneuf du Pape to be the wine of the vintage, and it can most certainly be counted among the finest. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre . . . the wine has an inky black/purple color as well as incredible density and richness, with notes of soy, blackberry, and blueberry liqueur, incense, acacia flowers and licorice. The layered, full-bodied mouthfeel displays no heat, but the wine has massive concentration and a silky, smooth finish . . . . this has turned out to be a glorious example of Chateauneuf du Pape to drink over the next two decades." Wine Advocate #197, Oct 2011
Provenance: The Gloire Cellar
Notes: 2 Very lightly scuffed labels, 2 different importers.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $650
