    Cuvée presentation

    The Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Syrah and Cinsault in this cuvée are cultivated free from pesticides or insecticides. The berries are 80% de-stemmed and macerated for 12 to 15 days, and the wine is matured in foudres for between six and nine months. This is a beautifully structured wine with an irresistibly fruity and liquorice tinged aromatic bouquet. Its elegant tannic backbone means it will benefit from ageing for a while - it will then be perfect with meats in sauce or grilled meats.

    Information about domain Domaine de la Janasse

    In 1967, Aimé Sabon took over the vineyards his family had acquired in the 19th century. In 1973, he stopped supplying grapes to trade and the local co-operative, built his own winery, and created Domaine de La Janasse, named after the family farm in Courthézon in the lieu-dit of ""La Janasse"". All aspects of the business, from vineyard to sales, are still handled by the family. Aimé's eldest son, Christophe Sabon, joined his father in 1991 and is now in charge of the property's 55 hectares of vines which are grown on around 60 plots scattered across the Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes du Rhône and Côtes du Rhône Village designations. The domain also produces wine under the Vin de Pays de la Principauté d'Orange and Vin de table appellations. The vines are tended meticulously and in harmony with the characteristics of each terroir and parcel. In line with the principles of sustainable farming, herbicides and chemical products are kept to an absolute minimum. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted twice. After vinification, the wines are matured,depending on the grape variety, in foudres or barriques and the percentage of new wood is kept low. Depending on the wine, élevage lasts for between 12 and 18 months. There is no filtering stage and the wines are bottled after gentle fining. Today, the wines enjoy a solid reputation, with the mosaic of terroirs they come from adding a rare complexity.
