PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS:
Clos St. Antonin is the newly-acquired domain by the Sabon family of the famed Domaine de la Janasse. 15 acres are under vine, with two in the AOC of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. 2015 was the inaugural vintage of the Clos St. Antonin CdP; this superb wine has been surpassed by today's sophomore effort. It is sourced entirely from the famed La Clau vineyard, which boasts one of the highest elevations in the AOC and rich soil layered with alluvial deposits, limestone, silica, and red clay known as molasse - all topped with those famous galets. The legendary Mistral winds sweep away any moisture in the air, protecting the vines from rot. Crafted from 100% Grenache, this unfiltered and unfined beauty is a robust yet elegant expression of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. 

96 Points, Wine Advocate
"All Grenache grown on sandy sites, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the poster child for the current trend toward elegant, almost weightless wines from that unique combination of variety and terroir. Raspberry and strawberry aromas and flavors pick up complex notes of garrigue as they glide easily across the full-bodied palate and into a long, silky-ethereal finish. It's a paradox that illustrates the specialness of Grenache in certain situations and which must be tasted to be understood. Drink 2018-2035." (8/31/18)

92-94 points, Vinous
"Vivid ruby-red. Deep-pitched aromas of ripe red fruits, incense, and exotic spices are lifted and sharpened by a smoky mineral element. Juicy and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated cherry and raspberry flavors that flesh out and become sweeter as the wine opens up. Smooth, harmonious tannins give frame and grip to an extremely long, spice-accented finish that emphatically echoes the red fruit note." (7/18)
