80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah
This is a new project of Isabelle Sabon and her father, Aimé, of Domaine de la Janasse, who purchased this 15 hectare domain in 2014. The estate, itself, is located in Jonquières just north of Courthézon. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape will be made from fruit drawn from two hectares of vines in the prime La Crau and Font du Loup vineyards, which were part of Domaine de la Janasse. This 2015 was actually made entirely from La Crau fruit. Those holdings are being folded into Clos St.-Antonin in anticipation of the usual French succession issues that will ensue when Isabelle and her brother, Christophe, take over Domaine de la Janasse from their father.
What The Critics Say
89-91/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Jo Czerwinski
"The final blend of the 2016 Cotes du Rhone, tasted prior to bottling, is 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah. Ripe, mouthwatering and fresh, this medium to full-bodied wine delivers juicy plum and black cherry fruit underscored by softly dusty tannins. It should drink well for up to 5 years." Drink 2018 - 2023
