About

90-92

"The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape sports a medium ruby color as well as perfumed notes of strawberries, currants, dried herbs and dried flowers. Elegant, medium to full-bodied and polished, drink it on release and over the following decade." One of the finest run estates in all of Châteauneuf du Pape is Domaine de la Janasse, which is managed today by the brother and sister pair of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon. Looking at the 2014 and 2015 releases, both lean towards the more finesse-driven end of the spectrum, with Pinot Noir-like textures and less overt concentration than past vintages. That’s certainly expected in a vintage like 2014, but is surprising in a vintage like 2015. While the estate’s reds, both Châteauneuf du Papes and Côtes du Rhône, are well known, don’t make the mistake of missing their whites, as these are some of the most impressive and age-worthy wines in just about every vintage. It’s also worth noting the new Isabelle Sabon Clos St Antonin releases, also reviewed in this report. This is a new estate located just beside the Plan de Dieu and they release four cuvées: one white and three reds.

Product Description:

"This wine is comes from different soils (sandy, pebbly, red clayey), located in the northern part of the appellation and in La Crau plot. A balance Châteauneuf wine, with notes of black fruit (blackberry, blackcurrant), combined with aromas of violet, lining a long and silky mouth, nervous. Ample and structured sensations will do wonders on dishes and grilled meat simmered, lamb roasts with herbs or beef stew. Enjoy it within the next twenty years." - Winery
