Domaine de la Janasse – Vieilles Vignes 2016 – Châteauneuf-du-Pape 

The nose is aromatic, racy and powerful (but in finesse). It reveals notes of cassis, small wild berries and small notes of blackberry associated with slight touches of wild strawberry, spices, licorice, flowers as well as discreet hints of pepper. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers gourmandise, finesse, a beautiful suavity, a beautiful juiciness, a good definition as well as a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, juicy plum and small notes of juicy black berries, fleshy blueberry associated with hints of fleshy raspberry, Zan, tobacco, toasted oak / chocolate as well as slight / discreet hints of caramelization and almond. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Good length.
