Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine de la Janasse|
Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe, smoke-accented red and dark berries, exotic spices and lavender, and a subtle mineral nuance adds vivacity. Sappy, sweet and lively on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and floral pastille flavors that are joined by hints of licorice and bitter cola on the back half. Smooth and seamless in texture, showing very good finishing clarity, rounded tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence.
The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape from this team checks in as 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and the rest Cinsault and other permitted varieties brought up in foudre and barrels. A sexy nose of kirsch liqueur, blackberries, flowery incense, and ground pepper gives way to a medium to full-bodied, layered, elegant wine that has plenty of tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish.
Alluring tobacco, alder and grilled herb notes lead the way, followed by silky mulled cherry and red currant fruit flavors. A sandalwood echo runs through the finish. A charming old-school version that is approachable now. Drink now through 2029.
