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 Read more »

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Janasse Cdr Rouge 2010


    Pretty red fruit on the nose. Underbrush and very slight mint. Cherry liquer. Fresh and rich with flavors of mineral-laced elegant berry fruit. Med to full body and lots of minerality. Some light herb. Pure red fruit. Good wine.88 pts.12/8/12 Read More

  • Domaine de la Janasse Vin de Pays de la Principauté d'Orange Terre de Bussière 2009


    An extremely pleasant surprise from a mixed case purchased from Wine Library - I think this bottle was about $12. Rich, fruity and smooth red - dangerously easy to drink. Plush mouthfeel, nice acidity (paired well with a steak and some dark chocolate), not too tannic. Tasted more like an Aussie shiraz than a French blend, but I'm not complain... Read More

    Wine review by Barberolo

  • Cotes du Rhone Villages les Garrigues Janasse 2010


    The nose was plush with ripe blackberry fruits, violet candies, herbs and sweet spices. On the palate, it was velvety with intense concentration, yet balanced with acidity that kept it fresh and juicy. Sweet blackberry, cola and violets from the bouquet filled the senses. The finish was remarkably long with lasting dark fruits that seemed to cha... Read More

  • Domaine de la Janasse Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2010


    The nose showed a vibrant mix of ripe wild berries, blueberry jam, sweet spices, licorice, hints of vanilla and mountain herbs. On the palate it was rich and full bodied yet showed excellent acidity, which kept it in check and left a juicy sensation throughout. Crushed blackberry and spice saturated the senses yet a hint of heat detracted ever s... Read More

  • Domaine de la Janasse Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009


    The nose was elegant yet with razor sharp intensity, giving aromas of crushed blackberry, currants, dark chocolate, pencil led and sweet exotic spices, which filled the senses. On the palate, it was like velvet but with an acid profile that kept it lively and fresh as flavors of raspberry, black cherry liquor, licorice and herbs flowed into the ... Read More
