About 65% old Grenaches, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Cinsault
Domaine de la Janasse was established in 1973 by Aimé Sabon. Brother and sister team of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon continue to work wonders at Janasse, and farm 80 hectares of vineyards spread over a number of wine appellations: Châteauneuf du Pâpe, which is all located in the north-east of the appellation in the commune of Courthézon to be precise, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Village, but also Vin de Pays de la Principauté d'Orange and Vin de table. Concrete tanks are used for the Grenache and oak for the Syrah and Mourvèdre; in other words, everything is fairly traditional; it is the quality of the raw materials which is so impressive.
What The Critics Say
91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Joe Czerwinski
"A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre and 5% other varieties, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape is full-bodied, supple and easy to drink, loaded with concentrated black raspberries spiced with hints of clove, allspice and clove. It's a ripe, plush wine to enjoy in its first decade." Drink 2019 - 2027
91-93/100 Vinous, Josh Raynolds (2016 vintage)
Vivid ruby-red. Intensely perfumed, mineral-accented aromas of ripe red and blue fruits, cola and incense expand with aeration. Palate-staining raspberry and boysenberry flavors are joined by an exotic floral pastille quality that builds steadily on the back half. Rich but bright and energetic as well, showing impressive finishing clarity and smooth tannins that add shape and closing grip.
