"This has long been one of my favorite estates in the southern Rhone." - Robert Parker
When talking about the best Chateauneuf du Papes, Domaine Roger Sabon is always part of the conversation. And with good reason - they maintain 40+ acres of top vineyard holdings throughout the appellation, and their wines are consistently some of the best you'll find for the money. They created another masterpiece in 2009 with their luxury offering, 'le Secret de Sabon', and we have it today for the best price by over $40 per bottle. Better yet, it's the lowest price of any vintage current on the market!
This back-vintage effort is the top tier of the four red cuvees made at this estate, and Parker has praised it as a "beauty of full-bodied power and great Provencal complexity."
The Sabon wines define a heralded appellation with a family legacy that goes back to the mid-1500s. As Parker suggests, "any partisan of Rhone Valley wines (especially the southern Rhone) who has not yet tried a wine from Domaine Roger Sabon should make every effort to do so." Why not start at the very top of their lineup for an unbeatable price? We have a mere 3 cases available, so act quickly Rhone fans. Cheers!
