    ($58) Vivid red. Musky redcurrant and wild strawberry aromas are complicated by garrigue, anise and minerals. Fleshy, open-knit red berry flavors are energized by gentle mineral and white pepper qualities. Gains sweetness on the finish, along with fine-grained tannins. Give this youthful wine at least a few years in the cellar.

    Mid crimson. Savoury, tarry nose. very 'masculine' on the nose, then sweet palate entry but a bit muted. ÿ60 year old vines on average apparently.

    Very tight. Wonderful flavors but very young.

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.
