How to serve
Because of its exploded structure (more than sixty parcels), the La Janasse estate extends over a mosaic of terroirs (see illustration). Careful study and research on soils, their exposure and microclimates has made it possible to ideally organize the vineyard. White grapes and Syrah are planted preferably on sand-limestone soils and exposed northeast, to preserve freshness, acidity and finesse.Mourvèdres planted on clay-limestone soils covered with rolled pebbles get a very good level of maturity.More about the Winery

The Domaine de la Janasse Tradition offers wonderful tinges. Deep scent, like coffee. The toasted flavours liked me.
Domaine de la Janasse Tradition 2017
Attractive and intense colour. Toffee notes can be appreciated. The grape had presence.
My partner paired it with several snacks. Was a good idea.
Domaine de la Janasse Cotes Du Rhone 2015
Red with purple highlights. Pleasant scents of nuts. This stands out with a lingering finish.
I recommend to taste it with prosciutto.
