Description

This exceptional varietal Chateauneuf du Pape from Domaine de la Janasse uses hand harvested Grenache grapes from their low yield Chaupin vineyard with old vines dating back to 1912. This long standing producer of the finest wines takes the utmost care in production, with maturation for 12 months in French oak. 

The result is an extremely juicy wine with a sappy core of cassis, raspberry and currant confiture backed by notes of bittersweet cocoa, fruitcake, mulled spice, currants, chocolate and liquorice. Rich, smooth and satisfying. Try with roast beef, lamb curry, rich stews, smoky cauliflower steaks, or brie.

More than 40 years after Aimé Sabon established Janasse at Courthézon, this iconoclastic
young Turk of yesteryear is now established as one of the southern Rhône’s finest wine estates, spanning some 80 hectares of vineyards. Now under the control of Christophe Sabon and his sister Isabelle, Janasse’s much lauded Châteauneuf du Papes are a quintessentially modern interpretation of the vineyard’s superlative raw material: deep colour, excellent fruit, supple tannins and extraordinary richness.
