A beautifully stylish, opulent and simply delicious Chateauneuf from the Sabon family's Janasse estate. Glossy and bright fruit couples with silky richness, floral delicacy and a fine-earth mineral touch that brings effortless compliment and gentle complexity to the nose and palate. Seamless quality and perfect appeal – this is vintage Janasse.
90-92/100 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (2015 Vintage)
"Bright violet. Vibrant, mineral-accented raspberry and cherry scents, along with hints of candied lavender and anise. Seamless and focused on the palate, offering energetic cherry and red berry flavours that become spicier and deeper with air. Finishes vibrant, sweet and quite long, featuring a resonating raspberry note and a hint of fine-grained tannins that sneaks in slowly. (made with 30 percent whole clusters and aged in a combination of concrete tanks and barriques)."
90-92/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage)
"The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape sports a medium ruby colour 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."
