Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"fantastic white that‟s a blend of 60% Grenache blanc, 20% Roussanne, and 20% Clairette, with the Roussanne aged in barrel, the 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition Blanc possesses classic aromas of peach and stone fruits, gorgeous minerality (wet slate-like), and richer, background notes of toast, vanilla, and crème. Gorgeously fresh and clean, with a medium-bodied, rich texture, perfect balance, and vibrant acidity, this beauty should be consumed over the following 2-3 years, or cellared for 7-8...93" RR 9/11 "Rich but remarkably pure, with pear eau-de-vie, blanched almond, green plum and lilting honeysuckle notes all weaving through the stone-tinged finish. Creamy and precise. A beautiful wine...93" WS 10/11 "Even better is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, a blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette and 30% Roussanne. Sabon has the courage to put this wine through malolactic so he does not have to filter it, and the result is a zesty wine displaying lots of pear, pineapple, white peach and rosewater notes, great fruit, a medium to full-bodied texture, fresh acids and a luscious finish...92" 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
