Raspberries and cherries appear on the nose alongside subtle hints of garrigue. The full-bodied palate is almost airy in feel, supported by a latticework of silky tannins and bright acids, while simultaneously adding bass notes of dark chocolate and licorice that linger on the finish. It's an impressive effort.- JC

Not shy with its fruit, but this has more than enough energy and detail for balance. Best from 2021 through 2038. 504 cases imported. — JM

It has a vinous finesse to the aromatics, full-bodied, very smooth and generous. It very much displays a pure Grenache style, with a great finesse to the tannins and purity of fruit. Voluminous and silky - a lovely superfine tannic weave, like satin, with an inner sucrosité, and the acidity is well balanced. Long, tapered finish. Drink it young in its finesse, or wait. Partially destemmed pure Grenache planted on lieux-dits Chapouin, La Janasse and La Crau, the oldest planted in 1912.

Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it has a seamless texture, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish. I’m inclined to recommend drinking this in its first decade of life, but I do love its balance and it has ripe tannins, so I expect it will actually evolve gracefully for a solid 15 years or more. It’s a pretty, elegant, classy wine that I would be thrilled to drink.

Produced from 100% old vine Grenache, the wine is spicy, medium-bodied, smoky, elegant, round and loaded with lush, but refined red fruits. Give this a few years in the cellar and it should fill out nicely.

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.
