2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 2004 Domaine de la Janasse
Scoring 95/100 Parker points and from the very good 2004 vintage, "Showing even better than when I tasted it for the 2004 retrospective earlier this year, the 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is about as rich and textured as they come in the vintage. Blackberry, licorice-laced cherries, sugared garrigue and crushed flowers all emerge from this full-bodied, supple and yet beautifully balanced wine. As with the Chaupin, its entering its prime drink window, and will continue to evolve gracefully. Ill say again though, its drinking beautifully now." Drink now - 2035. This vintage wine is shipped in a deluxe silk lined wooden presentation box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.
