Wine of the Week
Domaine Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin ’18 “As usual, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin displays more red fruit than the main bottling, being 100% Grenache from sandier soils. Raspberries and cherries appear on the nose alongside subtle hints of garrigue. The full-bodied palate is almost airy in feel, supported by a latticework of silky tannins and bright acids, while simultaneously adding bass notes of dark chocolate and licorice that linger on the finish. It’s an impressive effort.” 95 Pts Wine Advocate $79.99/btl
