Winemaker Notes

Between blackcurrant and tapenade, Terre d’Argile offers concentrated flavors, reminiscences of its famous neighbor. Dense and meaty, the mouth reveals deep and sweet ripe fruits on a persistent finish, which suggests a few good years of cellar aging.

Serve within ten years with lamb chops.

Blend: 25% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Mourvedre and 25% Carignan.

Jeb Dunnuck

Bottled in March of this year, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône villages Terre D'Argile sports a deep purple color as well as a fresh, elegant, classy style in its cassis, crushed violets, spice, and mineral. It's full-bodied, has beautiful purity, fine tannins, and a pure, clean, straight style. It's going to age gracefully as well.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cotes du Rhone Villages Terre d'Argile is an equal-parts blend of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah. It's a full-bodied, silky-textured wine with bright acids that can rival many Châteauneuf-du-Papes. Dusty, earthy notes and dried spices accent cherry-berry fruit and then pick up classy hints of licorice on the lingering finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Equal proportions of Carignan, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah lend spicy, earthen complexity to juicy black-cherry and berry tones in this wine. While plump and primary in style, it’s intensely concentrated and balanced by fresh acidity and gripping tea tannins on the finish.

Domaine de la Janasse Hélène & Aimé Sabon Winery Image

Domaine de la Janasse has quickly become one of the Superstar estates of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Led by the dynamic Christophe Sabon, the estate 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 Chateauneufs.

The estate was founded in 1976 by Aimé Sabon, Christophe’s father, who still oversees the vineyards and farms organically. The property consists of 40 Hectares, spread over as many as 70 different parcels throughout the appellation.

While Aime works in the vineyards, his son, Christophe Sabon, is in charge of wine production. Christophe is a self-proclaimed “great defender of Grenache,” which still represents 75% of their vines. He manages the common rusticity of Grenache-based wines through meticulous work in the vineyards and cellar. The result is a wide range of lavishly ripe, extracted Chateauneuf-du-Papes and Cotes-du-Rhônes that are complex and yet balanced with acidity -- often in contradiction to an appellation better known for sheer exuberance and power. As Robert Parker points out: “The young and talented Christophe Sabon continues to display the sure-handed touch of a veteran winemaker”.
