Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Even better is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Prestige (a 100-case blend of 60% Roussanne and the rest Bourboulenc, Clairette and Grenache Blanc). It is viscous, with lots of honeysuckle, white peach and marmalade notes offered in a fragrant, full-bodied, stunningly rich style. It can be compared to a great Batard-Montrachet from Burgundy...94" 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
