Domaine de la Janasse, Cotes du Rhone Reserve 2019


Over the last quarter century, Domaine de la Janasse has become one of the most highly-regarded estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Led by siblings Christophe and Isabelle Sabon, the estate combines the best of both traditional and modern techniques to craft a collection of truly riveting wines from “simple” value-priced VDP’s to their benchmark Châteauneufs.

The estate was founded in 1976 by Aimé Sabon, the father of Christophe and Isabelle, who still oversees the vineyards. The property consists of 40 hectares, spread over as many as 70 different parcels throughout the appellation.

Côtes-du-Rhône Reserve is a more serious effort than the regular Côtes-du Rhône bottling that showcases the estate’s ability to marry richness with finesse.
