Winemaker's Notes

A lavishly ripe, extracted Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is complex and yet balanced with acidity - often in contradiction to an appellation better known for sheer exuberance and power.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape is the most widely available (nearly 30,000+ bottles produced even in a small vintage such as 2010) of Janasse’s Chateauneufs. It exhibits a dense purple color along with a glorious perfume of blackberries, creosote, scorched earth, smoked herbs, cassis and kirsch. Full-bodied with impressive purity, structure and precision, this is a more reserved, backward and structured effort than its 2009 and 2007 counterparts."
94 Points

"Opaque violet color. Spicy raspberry, licorice, minerals and an exotic whiff of incense on the nose. Supple in texture, with a velvety quality to its red berry preserve, cherry, mineral and rose pastille flavors. Finishes broad, long and seductively sweet, with slow-building tannins and very good clarity.
Range: 91-93"
