Overview

Domaine la Janasse was one of the first properties represented by European Cellars and for many years we sold their dependable and quaffable bistro-styled Côtes-du-Rhône. A few years ago while tasting in their cellar we sampled a portion of this cuvée out of foudre and the Côtes-du-Rhône Reserve was born. It’s a more serious effort   than the regular Côtes-du-Rhône bottling that showcases the estate’s ability to marry richness with finesse.
