VN94Vinous Jan 2016
"Vivid ruby. Vibrant black raspberry, potpourri and Asian spices are complemented by hints of candied licorice and smoky minerals. On the palate, deeply concentrated, palate-staining red and dark berry preserves, with enlivening five-spice powder, fresh lavender and exotic blood orange. Silky, interwoven tannins give shape and focus to the extremely long, sweet finish; shows outstanding clarity and power." (94 pts.)
The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.
RP96+96–98 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Aug 2018 The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes looks as if it will be a worthy successor to the awesome 2015 and 2016 bottlings. From tank, the Grenache shows lovely cherry-berry fruit, ample weight and richness and a long, silky finish, while the Mourvèdre from a new oak barrel stood up to the wood well, offering more red fruits, less alcohol and hints of toast and baking spices.JD95+95–97 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - August 28, 2018 Deeper ruby/purple-colored, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes includes slightly less Grenache than normal and is 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties. It offers more blackberry, cassis, peppery herbs, and crushed rocks, with a beautiful sense of minerality. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and focused, it shows an elegant, vibrant side to the vintage yet still has the expected Janasse power and depth. (Jeb Dunnuck)VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2021 Saturated ruby. Displays intensely perfumed, spice-accented black and blue fruit, floral oil and candied licorice qualities on the nose. Offers powerful cherry liqueur, black raspberry, fruitcake and exotic spice flavors that tighten up through the back half. There’s surprising energy here given the wine’s volume. Velvety tannins frame a strikingly long, spicy finish that strongly echoes the cherry and floral notes.SP9494 pts. - Wine Spectator - Web only – 2019 Ripe and fresh, with an engaging beam of cassis, dark plum and boysenberry puree flavors, supported by light anise, graphite and sweet tobacco notes. Shows good juicy energy and a seriously long finish. Drink now through 2035. 504 cases imported.
