Winemaker's Notes

Lavishly ripe, extracted Chateauneuf-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

"Coming from a cooler, sandy terroir in the northeastern part of the appellation, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin (which comes 80% from the Chaupoin lieu-dit and 20% from the La Janasse lieu-dit, hence the subtle name change) is 100% Grenache, from vines planted in 1912, that’s aged two-thirds in foudre and one-third in demi-muid. Gorgeous all around, with plenty of similarities to the traditional cuvee, yet slightly richer and fuller, it delivers beautiful mulled red and black fruits, licorice, spice and tinges of stony minerality on the nose. Full-bodied, supple, seamless and elegant, with fine tannin, it makes the most of a difficult vintage and is certainly one of the top 10-12 wines. Drink now-2023. "
95 Points

"Deep ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of dark fruit preserves, potpourri and garrigue, picking up sexy Asian spice nuances with air. Juicy, penetrating blackberry and blueberry flavors are complicated by notes of allspice and lavender, with a subtle smoky nuance emerging with air. Silky tannins carry through a long, spicy and incisive finish. This suave wine should be approachable soon after it's bottled.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
93 Points

"Bright kirsch, bitter cherry and pomegranate notes are lined with hints of shiso leaf and plum pit. Lively acidity holds the finish, while this fleshes out steadily in the glass, showing darker anise and blackberry notes, with subtle minerality. Best from 2014 through 2026."
