    Critical Acclaim:

    Possibly the wine of the vintage and the best bottle of this I’ve had to date, the 2003 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes has a drop-dead gorgeous bouquet of spice-laden red and black fruits, licorice, graphite and mineral to go with a seamless, full-bodied and decadently-styled palate. Seriously rich and voluptuous, yet also perfectly balanced, poised and fresh, this beauty should continue to shine for another decade, although I see no reason to delay gratification.

    The Wine Advocate

    Gorgeous raspberry ganache and spice aromas give way to richly layered but silky smooth notes of boysenberry, blackberry, mocha, mineral and tar. Long, pure beam of fruit resonates through the finish. Fantastic purity and finesse for the vintage.

    Wine Spectator

    Saturated dark red. Explosively aromatic, highly complex nose offers kirsch, raspberry liqueur, blueberry, tarragon, baking spices, smoked meat, espresso and hot asphalt. Lush and hefty but suave, with rich flavors of sweet dark berries, framboise, candied chocolate and licorice that build and deepen with aeration. A brisk mineral note keeps the fruit in check and adds focus and lift to the knockout, silky finish.
