Description:

Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2005
Southern Rhone
"Absolutely profound, and certainly one of the vintage's great wines is the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes. Inky plum/ruby/purple to the rim, with a big, sweet nose of melted licorice, smoked meats, blackberries, cassis, and earth, the wine is deep, powerful, full-bodied, with fabulous concentration, purity, and a multi-dimensional mouthfeel. The finish goes on for close to a minute. Forget this wine for 2-5 years and drink it over the following 25+ years. " R. Parker, 98 pts. 10/07
