Domaine de la Janasse Viognier Vin de Pays de la Principauté d'Orange 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"An amazing offering, the 2011 Vin de Pays Orange Viognier comes from a selection of grapes Sabon made from cuttings in the finest vineyards in Condrieu. The wine is vinified in barrel and then moved to tank. Revealing classic notes of apricot marmalade, lychee nuts and honeysuckle, medium body and crisp acids, it is a remarkable tour de force in winemaking for an inexpensive white from one of France’s most humble viticultural appellations...90" WA 10/12

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
