    ($150) Bright, deep ruby-red. Brooding, pure, liqueur-like aromas of black cherry, cola and bitter chocolate. Rich, thick and velvety in the mouth; amazingly silky, seamless Chateauneuf. Liqueur-like red and black fruit flavors show a compelling perfumed quality. Builds slowly and lingers long on the aftertaste, hinting at cherry skin and mace. Showed a bit more oaky torrefaction with extended aeration. Perhaps the best bottle I've yet tasted from this producer. (European Cellars, Charlotte, NC)

    This was more than made up for by the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape le Secret du Sabon, which was insanely good. Still inky in color (as are most of the top 2001s), it has incredible aromas of cassis, licorice, red wine marinade, roasted meats and bouquet garni that flow to a full-bodied, massive, yet seamless and layered wine that never puts a foot wrong. I don't know if I prefer it over the '07 or '10, but its monumental stuff, without a doubt.

  • The Sabon family has a long history in Chateauneuf du Pape, and it is one of the oldest documented landholders in the region. Roger Sabon is the father of the three brothers who run the domain today - Jean-Jacques, Denis, and Gilbert. Since 2001, Didier Negron, son-in- law of Jean Jacques, has been the winemaker. Denis and his son Julien take care of the vineyards, and Delphine, daughter of Denis, runs the winery office. Today the domaine owns 15 ha. in Chateauneuf du Pape and 17 ha. in Roquemaure from which they produce Lirac and Cotes du Rhone.
