Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Janasse 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 40% Clairette and 20% Roussanne, the surprisingly rich, textured 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc exhibits plenty of buttered peach and tropical fruit to go with tinges of vanilla and brioche. Full-bodied, rich and textured, with superb mid-palate depth, enjoy this classy, serious effort over the coming 2-3 years...92" WA 10/13

Aimé SABON comes back from his military duty in 1967 and takes over his father's vineyards (who was bringing his grapes into cooperative cave) and father-in-law's vineyards (who was selling the wine). He builds his cave in 1973 and thus creates the domain of La Janasse, from the name of family camp located in Courthezon. His ambition will be to enlarge the domain by acquiring new vineyards of different varieties, going from 15 ha to 55 ha nowadays. In 1991, after a BTA in winemaking and oenology at Beaune and a BTS in marketing at Macon, Christophe joins his father who leaves him the responsability of the cave. He will create the different vintages and develop the marketing of the domain. Isabelle, the sister of Christophe and also oenologist, joins the team in 2001. Nowadays, all SABON family members work together on the domain : * Aimé SABON : vineyards * Hélène SABON : accountancy - administrative * Isabelle SABON : marketing - vinification * Christophe SABON : vineyards - vinification - marketing Read less

Garnet color in the glass going to violet on the edge. Ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum aromas on the nose. A juicy rush of ripe dark fruit quickly gives way to ample tannins that linger on the palate. This drinks well on it's own, but really begs for a meal. This wine will greatly benefit from decanting it at least 30 minutes to an hour beforehand (this wine was twice as big and complex an hour after I opened it - definitely worth the wait...)

Glorious full, aromatic gentle Rhone with complex hydrocarbon hints and massive fruit. Aged in our 'cellar' for six years and opened for a special occasion, a respectful hush fell around the table as people took their first sips. If you've ever spent too much on a Chateauneuf - look out for this.

The 2007 Vin de Pays Terre de Bussiere (6,500 cases produced) is blend of 50andndash;60% Merlot and the rest Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache. A great value, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color in addition to loads of fat, juicy red and black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spice, and a fleshy, succulent style. Drink it over the next 2andndash;3 years.

Quality soars with the well-made 2007 Vin de Pays Terre de Bussiere, a blend of 65% Merlot and the rest Syrah and a dollop of Grenache. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas of fruit, camphor, cassis, white chocolate, and berries offered in an opulent, full-bodied, lush style. Itandrsquo;s hard to beat this wine for the price.

The 2006 Vin de Pays Terre de Bussiere exhibits plenty of tannin and earth, along with abundant fruit, medium body, and good spice.
