Southern Rhône

Domaine de la Janasse "Garrigues" Côtes-du-Rhône Villages '17

Led by second generation siblings Christophe and Isabelle Sabon (although Aimé Sabon is still organically farming the vineyards), Domaine de la Janasse combines the best of both traditional and modern techniques.  The domaine has increasingly become one of the most highly regarded wineries of the Southern Rhône over the last few decades.  

Just on the outskirts of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Domaine de la Janasse has a small plot of Grenache that are 100 years old.  The soils here are a fine, pebbly, red clay covered with gnarled, mistral-blown vines. In terms of terroir, it is more classically Châteauneuf than Côtes-du-Rhône and the "Garrigues" cuvée is made in a similar fashion as the estate's Châteauneufs.

This wine is packed with concentration yet rounded out with bright overtones and finesse from implementing partial whole cluster fermentation, gentle and slow maceration and a mixture of various vinification vessels.  This is an outstanding value, considering the domaine and its comparison to their CdPs!  

A wine like this, always calls out to grilled food and BBQ.  A perfect wine pairing for those who want to continue to drink their red wine in the summer, but eat in seasonal fashion!
