Fresh, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit and floral aromas show excellent clarity, and honey and vanilla elements add complexity. Silky, concentrated and sharply focused on the palate, featuring emphatic mineral lift to the concentrated pear and peach nectar and nougat flavors. A toasty lees note comes up slowly with air and carries through the very long, incisive finish, which leaves behind mineral and pear skin notes. The interplay of richness and vivacity that this wine displays is quite impressive. - Josh Raynolds

More traditional, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Clairette. You can taste the influence of each in the blend: orange notes from the Grenache Blanc, honeyed pineapple from the barrel-fermented Roussanne, and lime zest on the finish from the Clairette. Drink up. - Joe Czerwinski

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.
