Domaine de la Janasse
Domaine de la Janasse was established in 1973 by Aimé Sabon. Brother and sister team of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon continue to work wonders at Janasse, and farm 80 hectares of vineyards spread over a number of wine appellations: Châteauneuf du Pâpe, which is all located in the north-east of the appellation in the commune of Courthézon to be precise, Côtes du Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Village, but also Vin de Pays de la Principauté d'Orange and Vin de table. Managed by Christophe, who joined his father in 1990, the winery emphasizes on working the vines to obtain grapes of suitable maturity, concentration level, and terroir expression. The estate wines are elegant, graceful and possess the intensity of the old style traditionalist but with the purity of a modernist.
