Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes Chateauneuf du Pape Rhone France Grenache Blend 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

[96 pts The Wine Advocate]: The Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep black/purple color and a sweet nose of charcoal black cherries raspberry and some Provencal herbs and pepper. In the mouth it's tannic and clearly a vin de garde with refreshing acidity real vibrancy but surprising power and length. As Christophe Sabon said 'It's a wine that comes across as feminine because of the high acids and low pH but then the finished alcohol is close to fifteen percent!' Over the last decade Domaine de la Janasse has become one of the half dozen or so finest estates in Chateauneuf du Pape. However they also produce an impressive range of Cotes du Rhones.

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
