Domaine de la Janasse Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

$94

Domaine de la Janasse is a Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer owned and operated by the Sabon family. It was founded in 1967 by Aime Sabon when he took over the vineyards of his father, who had been selling fruit to a wine cooperative. A cellar was completed in 1973 and the name 'La Janasse' was chosen from a local regional name in Courthezon to the north of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, where the family farm was located. In 1991 Aime's son Christophe came aboard, followed by his daughter Isabelle in 2001. Janasse grows all 13 permissible grapes in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, from the standard Grenache, Mourvedre and Syrah to lesser known components like Counoise, Vaccarese, and Bourboulenc. Many of the white Chateauneuf-du-Pape varieties, along with Syrah, are planted in the slightly cooler vineyards to the north in east-exposed vineyards. Mourvedre is planted with galets (river stones) that retain heat and allow the grapes to reach greater physiological ripeness. The most significant variety in the region is Grenache, which is planted throughout the vineyards. However, Janasse separates fruit from northern vineyards for use in varietal wines, and fruit in southern vineyards for blends where its character is balanced by other grapes.

Pronounced nose with liquored cherries, meat and herbs. Juicy cherries burst in your mouth with a pang of alcohol and acidity hits. Spices and herbs mix with a bit of meat. Tannins start to build after a while, which is welcoming to add some structure.

Underbrush, licorice, red raspberry, cracked pepper, with caramel and dried floral highlights. Balanced and smooth with plush dark red bordering on black fruits. Good length. Classic. Drink or hold.

A but astringent and awkward on opening but the promise is there. Good acidity and fruit balanced by minerality and floral elements. After an hour it’s still not quite ready but is showing more of its full potential. I’ll need to wait a few years before opening another of these. I suspect this will be singing after a day or two being opened.
