The Burgundian-styled 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Prestige, which is composed of 70% Roussanne and the rest Clairette and Grenache Blanc. There are about 100 cases of this beauty, which is vinified in new oak and kept in barrel, then bottled within a year of the vintage. The wine reveals a stunning perfume of orange marmalade, honeysuckle, apricot jam, rose petals and tropical fruits. Full-bodied and pure with the oak pushed to the background, it should drink nicely for several years, perhaps longer, but it is always a risk to age these wines beyond 3-4 years. - Robert Parker

Domaine de la Janasse

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.
