Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($48) Opaque ruby. Pungent raspberry and blackberry aromas are complicated by minerals and dried flowers. Lively red fruit flavors gain depth in the middle palate and pick up a deeper cherry pit quality. The finish repeats the cherry note and leaves notes of licorice and smoky minerals behind. I'd give this a few more years of aging, at the least.

GIFT from FBC £25.56 Made mainly from Grenache in the famous Chateauneuf -du -Pape region of the Rhone valley, this is a full-bodied red with blackberry, pepper and spice flavours. Ideal with roast beef. Drink 2012 to 2020

Agree with others on the flavors of fig and dark fruits. Drinking really well now, but just hitting its stride. Another 5-7 years plus and this should get even better.

Less fruit forward than some of the other 2007 Rhone wines so far (mostly Gigondas at this stage). Probably a little early for this, as still has an alcohol "burn." But, it has very nice fig and dark fruit flavors now.

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.
