Domaine de la Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape Tradition Blanc 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"Wine Advocate #156 (Dec 2004) Rating: 87 points Drink 2004-2008 Produced from 50-60 year old vines, the 2003 Cotes du Rhone (50% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 30% Carignan) reveals more dry tannin than its siblings along with big, sweet and sour cherry notes intermixed with hints of strawberries, leather, meat, and earth. Drink this muscular Cotes du Rhone over the next 3-4 years."" """

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

There are 1,200 cases of the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin. Essentially 100% Grenache from old vines and low yields, aged 70% in neutral wood foudres and 30% in old barrels, it tips the scale... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Grenache wine from Rhone in France. 2003 Domaine de la Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin 750ml
