The 2017 Janasse Chateauneuf du Pape is again a great year. This Chateauneuf is also medium to full bodied with the classic notes in the nose of raspberry, blueberries, toasted bread, licorice and spices. The wine is full bodied and is extremely pure and elegant with lots of fruit, good acids. This beautiful chateaneuf du pape from Janasse also has a drinking window of at least 15 years.

Domaine de la Janasse dates from 1967 when it was founded by Aimé Sabon with 15 hectares of vineyard. The total surface area is now 55 hectares and is currently being run by son Christophe and his sister Isabelle. The vineyards are located on a difficult surface of pebble, sand and large boulders. The vines are 40 to 80 years old. The yield is usually less than 30 hl / ha due to strict pruning and a rigorous vendange distance.

The big breakthrough of Janasse came in 2007, when their Châteauneuf du Pape "Veilles Vignes" scored 100 points Parker !! All their wines score excellent year after year. The quality of this domaine is so great that even their "regular" Cotes-du-Rhone already has a worldwide reputation! This is really a TOP domain!
