Domaine De La Janasse Cotes Du Rhone 2016 (1 x 75cl)
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.
This wine comes from a single plot located to the east of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, in the city of Courthézon. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and the manure used is natural. The land is worked without herbicide to maintain the health and flexibility of the soil.
Featuring a beautiful structure, this Côtes-du-Rhône develops notes of fresh fruit (crushed strawberry, blackberry) on crisp, supported by a hint of liquorice. Moderately tannic, this wine retains its gluttony on grilled meat or fresh tomatoes pie. Drink within the next five years.
