The Janasse Blanc Prestige is a blend of 70% Roussanne, 15% Grenache (over 60 years old), 15% Clairette (over 60 years old). The grapes are vinified separately and aged for 14 months in 103 year old oak barrels. Bottled without filtering.
The Janasse Blanc Tradition is a very serious and super elegant wine. It is a complex fruit bomb with peach, citrus, pear and vanilla). The wine is very concentrated but with an excellent freshness. This combination makes this wine so incredibly beautiful. The wine has an exciting amount of buttered citrus, pineapple, stone fruit and brioche where the oak component is perfectly integrated and pushed into the background. The wine is full-bodied, layered and incredibly textured, but always fresh and clean. Enjoy this for the next 20 years.
Domaine de la Janasse dates back to 1967 when it was founded by Aimé Sabon with 15 ha of vineyard. The total area now consists of 55 hectares and is currently run by son Christophe and his sister Isabelle. The vineyards are located on a difficult surface of gravel, 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 verte.
Janasse's big break came in 2007, when their Châteauneuf du Pape "Veilles Vignes" scored 100 points Parker!! Year after year, all their wines score excellently. The quality of this domaine is so great that even their "ordinary" Cotes-du-Rhone already has a high reputation worldwide! This is really a TOP domain!
