Le second millésime seulement pour ce Châteauneuf-du-Pape XXL 2016 de La Janasse produit exclusivement sur les millésimes de légende… 

100/100 Wine Advocate et 100/100 Jeb Dunnuck !

400 caisses de cette beauté en 2016. Provenant de vieilles vignes près de Beaucastel, La Crau et Saumade, qui sont toutes des terroirs de galets roulés. 90% de grenache et 10% de mourvèdre le composenet, élevés principalement dans des demi-muids. Ce vin incroyable est d'un profond rubis pourpre avec un nez massif de fruits noirs, de terre brûlée, de graphite, d'encens et de poivre. Pur, fin et toujours élégant, c’est un vin magique qui se conservera pendant 3 à 4 décennies.

"Only the second vintage of this cuvée ever to be produced (the other is 2007), the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape XXL is about 75% Grenache, with the rest a mix of permitted varieties. It incorporates "a lot" of whole clusters and matured in demi-muid. It was bottled in May but will likely only be released in November, says Christophe Sabon. Classy aromas of crushed stone, pencil shavings and baking spices start it off on a terrific note, while ripe raspberries and stone fruit unfold on the full-bodied palate. Contrary to the implications of its name, this wine boasts incredible finesse, elegance and length and is in fact more impressive for those qualities than its overall size, power and richness. It will certainly open a few eyes." 100/100 Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape XXL has only been made previously in the 2007 vintage, and there are around 400 cases of this beauty in 2016. Coming from old vines near Beaucastel, La Crau, and Saumade, which are all rolled stone terroirs, it’s mostly Grenache (there’s 10% Mourvèdre) brought up primarily in demi-muids. This incredible wine is deep ruby/purple-colored with a massive nose of black fruits, scorched earth, graphite, incense, and pepper. Deep, hugely concentrated, pure, fine and yet still elegant, it's a magical, heavenly wine that's going to keep for 3-4 decades. While the style at Janasse has shifted to one of slightly more freshness and elegance since 2007, this is much more in the style of the old days and is guaranteed to make your blood pressure jump about 10 points or more!" 100/100 Jeb Dunnuck
