The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Blanc is mostly Grenache Blanc but includes 20% each of Clairette and Bourboulenc, with a splash of Viognier. It was brought up in concrete tanks and is a shockingly good.

It was brought up in concrete tanks and is a shockingly good. I wouldn’t hesitate to put this in a blind lineup of top Châteauneuf du Pape Blancs! Offering lots of buttered citrus, white flowers, orange blossom and a kiss of minerality, it’s textured, layered and impeccably balanced on the palate. Don’t miss it! - Jeb Dunnuck

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.
