Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Chaupin 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

This 100% grenache vintage, located on the cold and late soil named Chapoin has been able to reach an optimum maturity thanks to ideal september climate conditions. The elevage showed flavors of red fruits and liquorice while keeping the soil-caracteristic smoothness et melted tannins. An elegant and powerful grenache ! - Grape variety : 100% Grenache - stems removal : 80 % - maceration : 22 days , must pressing : once a day - elevage : 30 % barrels (1/4 new), 70 % vat - rendering : 25 - 30 Hl/ha - plantation : 1912 for the oldest part - keep time : 5 to 25 years. Tasting: * color: intensive crimson * flavors: cherry liquor, licorice, flowers * Very rich and mighty but with melted tannin 12 000 to 16 000 bottles per year

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

Full deep red. Fresh aromas of red and black berries and flowers. Juicy and tightly wound, with a sappy freshness and a chewy texture. Boasts rather pinot-like red fruit flavors. Ultimately big, broad and seamless. Finishes with toothdusting tannins ... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Grenache wine from Rhone in France. 2001 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin 750ml
