I suppose one could say this wine was made in a quasi-modern style given its blackpurple color and sweet nose of creme de cassis and raspberries. It is a great Chateauneuf du Pape, with power, elegance, immense purity, a majestic, multi-layered feel in the mouth, and a finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. Although it remains unevolved and somewhat grapy, everything is present for a fabulous evolution of two decades or more.

Domaine de La Janasse

Domaine de la Janasse was created in 1973 by Aimé Sabon. The Janasse is the name of the family farm in Courthézon in the Vaucluse. This area is undoubtedly a significant references to the Rhone Valley.

In 20 years, the field has grown steadily and offers excellent local wines as vintages of Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf-du-Pape beautiful. The success of this field is a successful family life for the whole family will be invested in Sabon. Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes 2008 is a cuvée of four parcels situated on different soils, which are complementary in the assembly (a local "southern" composed of rounded pebbles that brings power and bold, a land on the same place as Chaupin for the freshness and acidity, a land of red clay covered with pebbles but very late because it is situated north of the appellation, which brings structure and body and finally a sandy limestone hill that gives the fineness ). The clusters presented with an extraordinary concentration of film and ripe, like the land of Chaupin have fully taken advantage of optimum conditions in September.
