"Domaine de la Janasse is one of the great winemaking estates of not only France, but of the world." - Robert Parker
Domaine de la Janasse is an historic producer that is “one of the benchmark estates in the Rhone Valley” for Jeb Dunnuck, and “one of the half dozen or so finest estates in Chateauneuf du Pape" according to Robert Parker. They deliver the goods yet again in 2013 with their 95-point Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf du Pape, "a fabulous wine" that is sure to wow anyone who follows this storied region with a pure but progressive style.
Domaine de la Janasse has a stunning track record in the Rhone, and the latest generation, Christophe and Isabelle Sabon, are finding ways to continue to push the quality upwards. For Robert Parker “their Chateauneuf du Papes are among the top three or four wines of the vintage." This 2013 is primarily Grenache and features a hallmark Rhone profile and is a classic rendition of Châteauneuf du Pape that will drink gorgeously for the next 10+ years.
The 2013 vintage had significantly lower yields so allocations are slim. Act now to get your order in. Cheers!
