About this winery:
Made by the brother-sister team of Christophe and Isabelle Sabon, Domaine de la Janasse was founded in 1976 by Aimé Sabon, the father of Christophe and Isabelle, after taking over the family vineyards. The property consists of 40 hectares, just about 100 acres, spread over as many as 70 different parcels throughout the south of France. (Previously grapes had been sold to the local cooperative.)
Terre de Bussière comes from a single vineyard that bears this name and which is located on the banks of the Ouvèze in the village of Courthézon. The site is planted with Merlot, Syrah, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon – all of which make it into the final blend. Made up of over half Merlot, it combines the delicacy of that grape with a classic southern verve, with plenty of plum and notes of dark fruit and leather.
Structured, it combines the delicacy of merlot with a classic southern verve, with notes of dark fruit and leather. A wine to drink uncompromising within the four next years on mediterranean cuisine.
Ratings & Reviews
Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A fleshy, forward style, with succulent plum and blackberry fruit laced with anise and singed vanilla details. Ample grip keeps this honest. Drink now. 500 cases imported." - JM (Nov 2014)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made mostly from Merlot and a step up over the 2011, the 2012 Vin de Pays Terre de Bussiere gives up loads of tobacco, peppery herbs and black cherry fruit to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich and textured palate."
