Cotes du Rhone Villages les Garrigues Janasse 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Another killer effort from Sabon, and one of my favorites of the entire portfolio is the 2010 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues. This wine is 100% percent Grenache from old vines aged in foudre and comes from just across the appellation border of Chateauneuf du Pape. I have called it a “Provencal fruit bomb” in the past, and it is once again in 2010. From a fabulous terroir, the kirsch liqueur and resiny pine forest notes as well as licorice and copious quantities of black currant fruit are all present in this elegant, full-bodied wine, which in 2010 has terrific density and richness, but slightly more acidity and definition than its counterpart in 2009...91-94" WA 10/11

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

The nose was plush with ripe blackberry fruits, violet candies, herbs and sweet spices. On the palate, it was velvety with intense concentration, yet balanced with acidity that kept it fresh and juicy. Sweet blackberry, cola and violets from the bouquet filled the senses. The finish was remarkably long with lasting dark fruits that seemed to change from ripe to tart as they melted from the palate. (93 points)
