DOMAINE ROGER SABON Chateauneuf-du-Pape

An excellent source of pure, supple Chateauneuf, from 50 year old vines grown on the famous “galets rouges” on the finest of the appellation’s sites. The regime here is consciously reasoned, with minimum use of vineyard treatments and no herbicides or pesticides. The fruit is subjected to a fairly traditional vinification, with a 20 day maceration at a relatively warm temperature followed by maturation in foudres and used barriques over 15 months. The Olivets cuvee is pure, fresh, suave and sleek, with supple tannins and a juicy blackcurrant, plum and cherry fruit, an expression perhaps of warm, velvety, generous fruit rather than grittier terroir, for which one might perhaps look to the wines of properties such Clos du Caillou. The family also produce a marvellous red Vin de Table in the form of Le Sabounet, a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault & Counoise. It is deep in colour, with a lovely, supple red and black fruit character, the ideal wine to accompany simple dishes such as charcuterie, pasta, poultry and grills, an entirely sensible wine which represents true value for money.
