Vin de Pays Principaute D Orange Viognier Janasse 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"This cuvée comes from a unique terroir made of river rocks on the edge of the appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at a short distance from La Crau. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and maure is natural. The land is thoroughly tilled in order to keep it ventilated and loose. Vinification occurs through pneumatic pressing and maceration in vat. This wine is aged on lees, 60% in vat and 40% in barrels (25% new) with lee stirring during 6 months. 15,000 bottles are produced each year. Tasting Notes: A well-born Viognier, with strong personality, very fresh but with the southern muscle. Ideal for an aperitif or mesclun salad and scallops. Serve within the next three years." -The winery

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
