Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape 2020

Available for:
With an ample and structured substance, this cuvée is well-balanced, whose notes of black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant), combined with aromas of violets, cover a long and silky mouth, all in nerve. Paired with dishes based on grilled and simmered meat, leg of lamb with herbs or stewed beef.

A terrific wine that harkens back to the 2016, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape delivers black cherries, blackberries and black olives, plus intriguing notes of garrigue. Full-bodied, rich and silky, it finishes long, with a wash of softly dusty tannins.

The classic 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape from this team is a winner, offering a medium to full-bodied, finesse-driven style as well as terrific aromatics of darker berries, raspberries, garrigue, and flowers, with a kiss of background peppery spice. It's balanced, medium to full-bodied, has ripe, soft tannins, and is loaded with character. Drink bottles over the coming 10-15 years.

Broad and rich in feel, with warmed cassis and cherry puree notes gliding through, laced with sandalwood, red tea and warm stone accents. A focused and steady wine that opens slowly in the glass. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. Best from 2023 through 2035. 2,500 cases made; 504 cases imported.
