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

Easily the most rich and concentrated the 2011 Domaine de la Janasse Chbteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes might just be the wine of the vintage. A blend of 85% Grenache 10% Syrah and the balance a mix of varieties aged 25% in barrel (40% of which are new) it offers up aromas of blackberry liqueur roasted meats graphite licorice and wet stone-like minerality. Full-bodied lavishly textured fresh and surprisingly structured with big mouth coating tannin and good acidity it will be one of the few 2011s to require bottle age as well as one of the longer-lived wines in the vintage.

Bright purple. Dark fruit liqueur star anise cinnamon and licorice aromas are sharpened by a lively mineral quality and a touch of white pepper. Sappy sweet and incisive with a suave blend of power and vivacity to its blackcurrant and mulberry flavors. Juicy acidity gives focus to the finish which features velvety tannins a touch of smokiness and outstanding energy. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
