With a bright and silky "Pinot-like texture and vibrancy", this newby in the Janasse stable resembles their top Chateauneuf. Like their super-expensive Cuvee Chaupin, the Clos st Antonin is 100% Grenache grown - mainly on Chateauneuf's more sandy soils. This creates an open and giving wine, with dark berry and spice characters brightened by lively, aromatic red fruit and herbal, mineral complexities. A red of both dimension and charm that beautifully exploits the ripeness and freshness of 2015.
94/100 Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The gem of the collection is the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape. Selected from two lots that used to go into Domaine de la Janasse's bottling, this is redolent or ripe berries and stone fruit, with a lush, silky, almost weightless feel on the palate. It's a lovely example of the delicate, elegant style of Grenache increasingly being produced from Châteauneuf's sandy soils. Aged in a combination of concrete vats and foudres, it should drink well for 10 years or more."
91-93/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (2015 Vintage)
"Lurid ruby. Highly expressive cherry and black raspberry aromas are complicated by floral and Asian spice nuances. Sappy, sweet and expansive on entry, then tighter in the middle, offering juicy, densely packed red and blue fruit flavours that turn sweeter and more lively as the wine opens up. Shows a subtle lavender pastille quality on the persistent, penetrating finish, which is framed by smooth, harmonious tannins. (aged entirely in foudres)."
