Cotes du Rhone Villages Terre D Argile Janasse 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

90-92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015s all show more elegant profiles than in the past, at the expense of some texture and richness. Coming from the same terroir as the Les Garrigues, the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Terre D'Argile will be bottled in March or April of new year. Deeper in color than the Les Garrigues, with terrific notes of cassis, crushed flowers, raspberries and licorice, it has medium to full-bodied richness, silky tannin and plenty of length." 10/16 #227

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
