Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

Similar to the 2011, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret du Sabon sports a big, full-bodied and mouthfilling profile to go with ripe blackberry, kirsch, flowers, licorice and earth-like aromas and flavors. Although showing incredibly well on release, and also at this tasting, I've had a few disappointing bottles of this from my cellar. Nevertheless, all of the wines have been fabulously concentrated and rich, so I suspect it just needs another year or two in the cellar.

Glass-staining ruby. A highly perfumed, seductive bouquet displays dark berry preserves, gingerbread, licorice and apricot, heightened by an assertive floral quality. Broad, palate-staining black raspberry and cassis flavors are lifted by a tangy mineral note and complicated by floral and Asian spice qualities. Benefits from aeration and offers an intriguing interplay of richness and vivacity. The long, sweet finish echoes the floral and spice notes and shows no rough edges. This is 100% grenache, from vines planted in the late 1800s and from a yield that was reportedly under 10 hl/ha.

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.
