Domaine de la Janasse, named after the family farm located in Courthézon, in "La Janasse". Aimé was very aware of the potential of this beautiful region and he did not hesitate to expand the area with new plots. Where La Janasse used to start with 15 ha, it now covers 90 ha. Christophe Sabon has been helping his father since 1991 and 10 years later his sister Isabelle also joined the team. Due to its fragmented structure (more than sixty plots), Domaine de La Janasse consists of a mosaic of terroirs. This diffusion of terroirs creates great complexity in the assemblages and also yields special cuvées such as Chaupin, Les Garrigues, Terre d'Argile and Terre de Bussières. Domaine de La Janasse became one of the gems of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in just a few years.
