Janasse Domaine de la Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes Proprietary Blend Wine 1999

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The floral (violets?)-scented structured backward powerful 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Vieilles Vignes boasts a dense purple color. Gorgeously rich flavors on the attack are followed by a heady muscular long wine requiring 2-3 years of cellaring; it should age for two decades. Importer: Eric Solomon European Cellars Charlotte NC; tel. (704) 358-1565 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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

A lovely traditional red with ripe red and black fruit and supple tannins. Full-bodied this delivers a fresh crisp attractive finish packed with spice mocha and smoke. Wonderful to drink young. Drink now through 2005. 665 cases made. PM Wine Spectator.
