D. de la Janasse, thanks to the great talents of winemaker Christophe Sabon, has become one of the finest estates in the Rh?ne. Whilst the D. has built its reputation on the quality of its Ch.neuf-du-Papes and C?tes du Rh?ne reds, Christophe?s white and red IGP Pays merit similar accolades. From IGP Pays to Ch.neuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes, the same levels of care and attention are lavished on the wines. Tiny yield from the old vines give great intensity of fruit, while the flavours are preserved by temperature control, and expertly sculpted by judicious us of barrique. Christophe?s talent is to express the brightness and intensity of the grape, and capture all the nuances of terroir.
