"Coming from a cooler, sandy terroir in the northeastern part of the appellation, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin (which comes 80% from the Chaupoin lieu-dit and 20% from the La Janasse lieu-dit, hence the subtle name change) is 100% Grenache, from vines planted in 1912, that’s aged two-thirds in foudre and one-third in demi-muid. Gorgeous all around, with plenty of similarities to the traditional cuvee, yet slightly richer and fuller, it delivers beautiful mulled red and black fruits, licorice, spice and tinges of stony minerality on the nose. Full-bodied, supple, seamless and elegant, with fine tannin, it makes the most of a difficult vintage and is certainly one of the top 10-12 wines. Drink now-2023. "

Robert Parker 92-94
"The brilliant 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaupin boasts abundant amounts of mulberry, lavender, black cherry, licorice and spring flower characteristics. Stunningly rich, full-bodied and opulent, it should age effortlessly for at least a decade. It is unquestionably one of the candidates for wine of the vintage."
