Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

Also fabulous, the 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape le Secret du Sabon reminds me of walking through the massive street market in the town of Vaison la Romaine in Provence. Exotic spice, cured meats, leather and licorice are all grounded by a rocking core of cassis and kirsch-styled fruit. Seamless and layered on the palate, with full-bodied richness and plenty of tannin, it's another thrilling vintage of this cuvee that will drink nicely for over two decades.

($265) Vivid ruby. Knockout nose evokes cherry preserves, blackcurrant, incense, lavender and fresh bay. Deep, sweet and rich but possessing uncanny energy, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors, a velvety texture and great clarity. An exotic floral pastille quality gains strength with air and carries through an endless sappy finish. For a wine this powerful, the focus and balance are striking.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Gorgeous kirsch and mocha aromas lead the way for this silky, alluring version, loaded with raspberry ganache, fruitcake, melted red licorice and graphite notes. The long, silky finish has nice latent grip and buried minerality.

About This Producer

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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
