Winemaker Notes

Chaupin was first conceived when Eric Solomon began importing Domaine de la Janasse to the US in 1990. At the time, Eric was struck by the purity and energy of the old-vine Grenache that Christophe Sabon made from the lieu-dit of Chapouin and he convinced him to bottle a portion of this wine as a separate cuvée. Since that time the sourcing of Chaupin has expanded to include Grenache from sandy soils in La Janasse and Le Crau.


Jeb Dunnuck - 97pts

Deeper colored, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Chaupin comes mostly from the Chaupoin lieu-dit yet always has small parts from La Janasse and a sandy part of the La Crau lieu-dit. Blackberries, ground herbs, graphite, and new leather notes all emerge from this concentrated, rich, powerful wine that stays tight, focused, and elegant on the palate. It's a killer wine, but it's going to need time.


James Suckling - 93pts

There’s a very rich and deeply detailed edge here and the 20% whole clusters are certainly adding some interest and complexity at this early stage. The palate has a firmish and fresh feel with a wealth of detailed tannin and a supple, even and juicy core of dark ripe berries. Great balance and deceptive power. Drink or hold.


Wine Spectator - 93pts

Warm cherry and plum paste flavors form the core, with melted red licorice, singed balsam and grilled herb notes. Reveals a gentle tug of earth at the very end. A strong effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2034.
