Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 94+ (2014 Aug.)

Also classic in style, yet still structured and lively, the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin started out tight and reserved, yet opened up beautifully in the glass to show complex crushed flowers, white pepper, garrigue and kirsch. Like the traditional cuvee, it has plenty of grip and structure, and will have another 3-5 years of solid drinking.

Vinous - Score: 97 (2010 Jun.)

The 2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chaupin (magnum) from Domaine de la Janasse was utterly spellbinding in the way it married elements of ripeness with minerality. Fresh and vibrant throughout, the Chaupin showed marvelous intensity and length in its seemingly endless layers of fruit. It was drop-dead gorgeous.
