($85) Deep ruby. Alluring, highly perfumed bouquet of vivid black raspberry, blueberry and minerals, with a sexy floral overtone. Impressively precise, with sweet red and black fruit flavors braced by tangy minerality and complemented by rose, lavender and succulent herbs. The finish of this impressively balanced wine is brisk and focused, with sneaky sweetness and persistence. This is Apollo to the 2007's Dionysus.

The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape La Cuvee du Papet has a dark plum/garnet color and a rather provocative nose of sassafras, garrigue, root vegetables, kirsch, and roasted meats. The wine has some tannin to shed, but is deep, medium to full-bodied, as well as stylish and elegant.

Wine Spectator | 93

Plush and forward, with a dusting of mocha leading the way for plum sauce, blackberry and currant fruit, all followed by coffee and spice notes on the fleshy finish. Starts slowly but puts on weight and depth in the glass, with lovely purity. 875 cases made.

About This Producer


The estate, run by the esteemed Sabon family, can trace its history back to 1547. It includes 25 hectares of Chateauneuf du Pape and parcels in Le Pied de Baud, lieu-dit Monalivet, and les Gallimardes, as well as 15 hectares in Cotes du Rhone. Making wine is still a family affair, and three brothers - Jean-Claude, Pierre and Bernard - run the property, with Jean-Claude's son Thierry, the current winemaker, trained in the tradition of the domaine since day one. The wines are a majority Grenache, with Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault completing the blends. Mont-Olivet produces a red and white Chateuneuf du Pape, and a red and white Cotes du Rhone. The "Cuvee du Papet" is only bottled in the most exceptional vintages.
