GV $29 | 2020 Domaine de la Janasse Côtes du Rhône Blanc

Description

Domaine de la Janasse has quickly become one of the Superstar estates of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The estate was founded in 1976 by Aimé Sabon who still oversees the vineyards and farms organically. While Aime works in the vineyards, his son, Christophe Sabon, is in charge of wine production. He combines the best of both traditional and modern techniques to craft a collection of truly riveting wines from “simple” value-priced VDP’s to benchmark Châteauneufs. The property consists of 40 Hectares, spread over as many as 70 different parcels throughout the appellation.

Their Côtes du Rhône Blanc is a blend of 50% Grenache, 15% Clairette, 15% Bourboulenc, 10% Viognier and 10% Roussanne.

“I love the wide range of fruit aromas, ranging from white peach to melon and ripe lemon, which pour from the glass of this excellent white Cotes-du-Rhone. Lively acidity and a positive touch of tannins neatly balance the generous body, and there’s a touch of mineral freshness at the long, very clean finish.”
-James Suckling, 92 Points

“I loved the 2020 Côtes du Rhône Blanc, and this is one solid white well worth seeking out. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, and Viognier, it has remarkable purity in its citrus and tangerine fruits as well as notes of chalky minerality and sappy herbs. Medium-bodied and balanced, Domaine de La Janasse makes brilliant whites across the board, and this is no exception. And it will probably represent a great value as well.”
-Jeb Dunnuck
