Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 96

The monumental 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a creative blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest grapes such as Vaccarese, Muscardin, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Counoise. Most of the fruit is aged in foudre, with the Syrah and Mourvedre components aged in new oak. The fabulous 2009 offers an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of charcoal, burning embers, black currants, soy, Asian plum sauce, blackberries and kirsch. The wine-s complexity is nearly off the charts. Moreover, once it hits the palate, the high glycerin, silky tannins, low acidity and luxurious concentration provide a compelling drinking experience. This spectacular Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the wine-s of the vintage. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years.

Dark, with a slightly chunky edge to the charcoal, roasted fig, mulled plum and black currant notes. A lacing of espresso and bittersweet cocoa helps add some finesse to the finish. A touch of cellaring should do the rest.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89-91

Vivid purple. A highly perfumed, exotic nose evokes black raspberry, Indian spices, licorice and violet, along with a hint of beef jerky. Broad, sappy dark berry flavors are underscored by tangy minerality and become smokier and meatier with air. Finishes with firm grip and no excess sweetness and repeats the smoky note.

Very dark purplish crimson. Heady and intense. Going for gold! Very ambitious and full of true Châteauneuf flavours. There is a great deal of tannin there but one has the impression that the fruit is worth waiting for.

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.
