It's always a good sign with the first word in my notes is "Wow" and the 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Côtes du Rhône Villages Terre d'Argile looks to be the best vintage of this cuvee yet!

It's always a good sign with the first word in my notes is "Wow" and the 2010 Domaine de la Janasse Côtes du Rhône Villages Terre d'Argile looks to be the best vintage of this cuvee yet! Showing serious and intense aromas this full-bodied uncommonly rich Côtes du Rhône has layers of texture brilliant concentration and a very long finish. It should be approachable on release but benefit from short to mid-term cellaring. Exciting stuff.

The 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d'Argile is a magnificent effort from the galets roules soils just behind Chateau Beaucastel across the border of Chateauneuf du Pape. Huge notes of black raspberries forest floor... The 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Terre d'Argile is a magnificent effort from the galets roules soils just behind Chateau Beaucastel across the border of Chateauneuf du Pape. Huge notes of black raspberries forest floor truffles roasted meats bouquet garni black raspberries and black currants jump from a glass of this powerful rich concentrated wine. With excellent acidity sweet tannin and amazing concentration for a Cotes du Rhone-Villages it should drink well for 6-8 years.

Janasse, Domaine de la

Domaine de la Janasse, in the Southern Rhone, was founded in 1967 by Aime Sabon. Having returned from military service, he took over management of the family vineyards and formed an estate label, named after the family farm in the locality of “La Janasse”. A cellar was built in 1973 and new plots were acquired, growing the total holdings from 15 hectares to more than 90 today.

In 1991, after earning diplomas in viticulture, oenology and marketing, Aime’s son Christophe Sabon was given the keys to the cellar. His sister Isabelle joined the team in 2001.

La Janasse grows all 13 permissible grapes in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation to give complexity and depth to their different wines. They produce 3 red and 2 white Chateauneuf du Pape wines, red, white and rose Cotes-du-Rhone, and a number of IGP wines.
