Domaine de La Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a red wine coupage where the Grenache predominates and is accompanied by Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cinsault. It is a wine from the AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape produced by Domaine de la Janasse.

With the vineyards of his father and father-in-law, Aimé Sabon started this family business in Courthézon (in the hamlet of La Janasse) in 1967. Before his arrival, the harvest was sold to wine producers. The cellar dates back to 1973. After studying oenology in Beaune and some work experience at Mâcon in 1991, Christophe joined the company and is now responsible for winemaking. His sisters Isabelle and Hélène are also actively involved. The wine arsenal has grown from 15 to 90 hectares since 1973. The Sabons match the grapes, the soil and the microclimate with great precision. All their efforts lead to incredibly balanced terroir wines.

The vineyards of Domaine de La Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape have sandy soils, pebbles and red clay. In total, they cover 10 hectares and are grown without the use of insecticides, herbicides or pesticides, and are fertilized with natural fertilizers. The land is tilled without weeding to maintain aeration and flexibility of the soil. Their yields are low, from 25 to 30 hectoliters per hectare, and so the vines produce a balanced and concentrated grape.

The grapes for Domaine de La Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape are harvested manually. Once in the winery, 80 percent of the clusters are destemmed and the rest remain intact. Once vatted, they ferment and macerate for a period of 21 to 28 days and daily battonages are performed to extract more color and structure from the skins. Finally, the wine matures, 80 percent in foeders and the rest in barrels (of which 1/3 new) for a total of twelve months.

Domaine de La Janasse Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a complex, structured and elegant wine that knows how to make the most of each of the varietals that compose it. It has an intense fragrance with aromas of black and red fruits. Round tones in the mouth, suppleness and finesse.
