The Janasse estate was founded in 1976 by Aimé Sabon, the father of Christophe and Isabelle, he oversees the vineyards today. A good sized domaine it is spread out in seventy parcels throughout the appellation. While Aimé works the vineyards organically, Christophe and Isabelle, are in charge of wine production. Christophe is a self-proclaimed "great defender of Grenache," which still represents 75% of their vines. This family team has been turning out killer wines that rival the best of the region.

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape exhibits more dark fruit than I would've expected, with black cherries, black olives and tar all mingling on the nose. In the mouth, the blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault is full-bodied, rich and velvety, with a lush, lingering finish. Easy to drink now, it should age for at least a decade just on its sheer concentration and ripeness.
