Chateauneuf du Pape Janasse 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape sports a medium ruby color as well as perfumed notes of strawberries, currants, dried herbs and dried flowers. Elegant, medium to full-bodied and polished, drink it on release and over the following decade." 10/16 #227 90-92 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "(made with 30 percent whole clusters and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and barriques) Bright violet. Vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry scents, along with hints of candied lavender and anise. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering energetic cherry and red berry flavors that become spicier and deeper with air. Finishes vibrant, sweet and quite long, featuring a resonating raspberry note and a hint of fine-grained tannins that sneaks in slowly." 3/17

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
