Domaine de la Janasse Cotes du Rhone Garrigues 2019  - First Bottle


92-94 Jeb Dunnuck -
The 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Le Garrigues offers more pure Grenache character in its kirsch and wild strawberry fruits as well as classy notes of Provençal garrigue, Asian spices, and flowery incense. Playing in the more medium to full-bodied end of the spectrum, it’s elegant and has silky tannins as well as a great finish. It’s another gem of a 2019 wine from this great estate.
93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The dense, full-bodied 2019 Cotes du Rhone Les Garrigues manages to be that without ever seeming heavy, overdone or chocolaty. Vibrant purple raspberries mark the nose and palate, lingering elegantly on the finish and picking up hints of wild thyme and bay leaf. I'd rather drink this than some underachieving producer's Châteauneuf, and it should be uncommonly long-lived for a Côtes du Rhône.
90 James Suckling -
Very dense black-plum bouquet with touches of bitter chocolate, raisin and licorice. For 15.5% alcohol this remains surprisingly cool and restrained on the palate, also thanks to the solid tannin base that gives it a certain grip. Even the finish is quite dry right to the end. Drink now.

About the Producer

The estate was founded in 1976 by Aime Sabon, the father of Christophe and Isabelle, who still oversee the vineyards. The property consists of 40 hectares, spread over as many as 70 different parcels throughout the appellation. While Aime works in the vineyards, his children are in charge of wine production. Christophe is a self-proclaimed, great defender of Grenache, which still represents 75% of their vines. With assistance from Aime and Isabelle, he manages the common rusticity of Grenache-based wines through meticulous work in the vineyards and cellar. The result is a wide range of rich and flavorful Chateauneuf-du-Papes, Cotes-du-Rhones and Vins de Pays that are complex and balanced often in contradiction to a region better known for sheer exuberance and power.
