Food Pairings for Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc
"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
