The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape is a terrific effort. Blended from six different lieux-dits, it's roughly 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre.

Blended from six different lieux-dits, it's roughly 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. The result features bright raspberry fruit, plenty of weight and richness, a supple, velvety mouthfeel and a touch of chocolate (but notably no heat) on the finish. - Joe Czerwinski

Ripe and focused, with lively plum, raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes that race along nicely, flecked with anise and fruitcake accents. A flash of shiso leaf adds life and cut to the finish, while the fruit streams through. Best from 2018 through 2030. 392 cases imported. –JM

(90-92 points) (made with 30 percent whole clusters and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and barriques) Bright violet. Vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry scents, along with hints of candied lavender and anise. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering energetic cherry and red berry flavors that become spicier and deeper with air. Finishes vibrant, sweet and quite long, featuring a resonating raspberry note and a hint of fine-grained tannins that sneaks in slowly. - Josh Raynolds

The standard blend of mostly 75% Grenache blended with 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape sports a medium ruby color and notes of black cherries, black raspberries, crushed flowers, and potpourri. Fine, elegant and seamless, with beautiful tannin quality, it's a classic, elegant 2015 to drink over the coming decade or more.

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.
