Domaine Roger Sabon

Domaine Roger Sabon came into being in 1952 when the family vineyards were split into three distinct entities (the other two being Domaine Chante-Cigale and Clos Mont Olivet).

Robert M. Parker, Jr (the world’s most influential wine reviewer), who awarded their 1988 vintage a perfect 100 rating, the first Chateauneuf-du-Pape so honoured, has this to say about Domaine Roger Sabon:

“This estate has been at the top of its game for many years and 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.

…the finest back-to-back vintages I have ever tasted from this 42-acre estate run by the large Sabon family, in this case, Jean-Jacques (recently deceased), Julien, Gilbert and Denis (Note: the helm is currently being turned over to the succeeding and equally capable generation, Didier Negron, Delphine and Julien Sabon).

They own 15 parcels spread throughout the appellation, most of them concentrated in the western and eastern sectors north of the village. The domaine occupies about seventeen hectares of prime vineyards in some of the best sites of Chateauneuf - Les Cabrieres, La Crau, Courthezon and Nalys, and all with "galets roules" the sizeable stones that soak up the sun and release the warmth to the vines at night.

The vines are a minimum age of 50 years, with 90-year-old vines for the Cuvee Prestige. They are mainly Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvedre, but Muscardin, Terret, Vaccarese and Counoise are also included in their Cuvee Prestige.

This estate has been making exceptionally high-quality wines for years, but recent vintages seem to have risen to a new level
