Domaine Roger Sabon produces some of the finest Chateauneuf Du Pape. This is his house red made from Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Counoise. Lovely, soft, juicy, red fruit on the nose and palate.
Fresh, fruity, elegant and supple. This is made by Roger Sabon who is highly regarded as a first class Chateauneuf du Pape producer. This is extremely good value for money. Very traditional in style; ripe red fruit and a savoury character with a touch of herbaceousness.
Domaine Roger Sabon is a good example of a family-run estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Roger Sabon founded the domaine as we know it today in 1952, following in the footsteps of his father. The domaine owns seventeen hectares of vines in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, composed of fifteen parcels located in the heart of the appellation, mostly on soils rich in pebbles. Their other property, Chapelle de Maillac, is located on the opposite bank of the Rhône River, and includes twelve hectares in Lirac.
