Details of wine

To offer this Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, Janasse's land seemed to be the best of the denomination from the land that meets the characteristics of the region. Wine grapes are available in 4 different lots on different soil types, from the pebbles in the terroir, but also from the red and limestone slopes of the particle. This careful research led Domaine owners to associate this Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes with 3 emblematic varieties of domain and appellation: Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. With screws aged between 60 and 100 years, the result is the effort and complexity of these selections and is found in an elegant wine with great fineness.

Name: Domaine de la Janasse
Start-up year: 1973
Cultivated hectares: 90
Winemaker name: Isabelle Sabon and Christophe Sabon
Address: 27, Chemin du Moulin – Courthezon (France)
Web Site: www.lajanasse.com

In 1967, Aimé Sabon came back from his military service. He took over his father’s vines, who used to take his grapes to the wine cooperative. In 1973, Aimé built his own cellar. Domaine de la Janasse was born and named after the family farm that was in Courthézon, in the locality of “La Janasse”. Aimé was ambitious. He knew he had fabulous soil and he wanted to expand the estate by acquiring new plots. From 15 hectares at the very beginning, La Janasse has now reached more than 90 hectares. Due to its fragmented structure -more than sixty plots- the area of La Janasse covers a mosaic of terroirs. Thorough research on soil, exposure and microclimates helped to ideally organize the vineyard. White varieties and syrahs were preferably planted on sandy limestones, exposed eastward of the appellation in order to preserve freshness, acidity and fineness. Mourvedres were planted on clay-limestone soils covered with river rocks so as to reach perfect maturity.
