Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"...terrific success. Showing even better after a year in bottle, this blend of 30% barrel-fermented Roussanne and the rest Clairette and Grenache Blanc exhibits lots of floral notes interwoven with tropical fruit, honeysuckle, and lemon zest characteristics. Full-bodied with a beautiful light gold color as well as an enticing texture...93" WA 10/09 "...Greenish-gold. Strikingly energetic aromas of pear, orange and white pepper. Vivid orchard and citrus fruit flavors show admirable depth and clarity, with a tangy mineral note on the back. The finish is refreshingly bitter and focused, leaving anise and herbal notes behind...90" IWC 02/09

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
