Domaine de la Janasse Viognier 2013
This cuvée is coming from a unique pebbles terroir on the edge of the appellation Châteauneuf-du-Pape, at short distance from the La Crau plateau. A well-born Viognier, with strong personality, very fresh but with the southern muscle. Ideal for an aperitif or a mesclun salad and scallops. Serve within the next three years.
In 1967, Aimé Sabon came back from his military service. He took over his father’s vines, who used to take his grapes to the wine cooperative. In 1973, Aimé built his own cellar. Domaine de la Janasse was born and named after the family farm that was in Courthézon, in the locality of “La Janasse”. Aimé was ambitious. He knew he had fabulous soil and he wanted to expand the estate by acquiring new plots. From 15 hectares at the very beginning, La Janasse has now reached more than 90 hectares.
