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

The nose was elegant yet with razor sharp intensity, giving aromas of crushed blackberry, currants, dark chocolate, pencil led and sweet exotic spices, which filled the senses. On the palate, it was like velvet but with an acid profile that kept it lively and fresh as flavors of raspberry, black cherry liquor, licorice and herbs flowed into the long finish, which saturated the palate with dark berries, peppery spice, and hints of tannin.

A dark, almost black color in the glass. The nose is intense showing dark blackberry fruit with beef broth, plum sauce, savory herbs, mint. The palate is rich, full and intense with pumpkin pie spice, blackberries, raisin, tar and black licorice. The finish is beautifully long and full of ripe cherry fruit. This was my wine of the night.

Janasse Chaupin '00 To me, this represents all that is intoxicating about the perfume of old vine Grenache. The sensual bouquet of allspice, cinammon stick, cassis, cherry liqueur and the black licorice essence rocket from the glass. The mouthfeel is pure and lush, expanding over the palate w/ fabulous breadth and depth. The intensity of the '00 Chaupin keeps its flavors alive, which never seeming heavy or dull. I've had this wine numerous times and this is by far the most impressive showing yet; just an outstanding vintage for Janasse, 95 points.

Well-focused, featuring unadorned pear and yellow apple fruit, with a hint of melon rind framing the finish. Pretty and refreshing. Drink now.

Starting out, the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is a brilliant, mostly tank-aged blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulenc and the balance Viognier and Roussanne (which were aged in barrel). Beautiful stuff, with rich white currants, citrus and tinges of minerality on the nose, it has fantastic freshness and focus on the palate, with clean, nicely defined aromas and flavor. Medium-bodied and perfectly balancing richness and freshness, it should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming year or two. Drink now.

Bone dry with real power. Aromas of peach and apricot, excellent concentration on the palate with vibrant acidity, a full mouthfeel and refreshing acidity on the finish.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is a classic blend of 75-80% Grenache and the rest Syrah and Mourvedre, but Sabon is increasing the Cinsault in the final blend. Aged completely in wood foudres and the triangular wood cuves called tronconique, it is a de... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape is probably one of the strongest andldquo;regularandrdquo; efforts I have ever tasted from Sabon. This dense purple blend of 75 to 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre and Syrah, aged in truncated wood cuves and foudres, has a beautiful, sweet nose of black cherry jam intermixed with roasted herbs, black currants, forest floor and a hint of charcoal. The wine has great intensity, full-bodied opulence, and a striking seductiveness that is already irresistible. It should continue to drink well for 12andndash;15 years.
