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
