Chateauneuf du Pape Janasse 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"Composed of 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and the rest Mourvedre and a touch of Cinsault, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape is outstanding. The Grenache is completely aged in foudre and the Syrah and Mourvedre are aged in small barrels. This flattering, precocious 2011 displays a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet scents of creme de cassis, black cherry jam, licorice, pepper and roasted meats. This beautiful red appears to represent a brilliant compromise between the old, traditional school of winemaking and the slightly more progressive/modern philosophies...91-93" WA 10/12

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
