Rhone by Roger Sabon

Domaine Roger Sabon Cotes du Rhone 2017

Very popular, rich and frutiy with lots of dark brambly fruit and spice, medium to full on the palate with soft approachable tannins and a long finish. A bottle of wine that delivers from vintage to vintage. A firm staff favourite! The wine is assembled from; Grenache 80%, Syrah 10% & Cinsault 10%.

Great with red meats and gutsy casseroles.


The Sabon family is an ancient and well-regarded name in Châteauneufdu-Pape first mentioned in documents dating to 1540. Domaine Roger Sabon was founded in 1952 and is currently run by Roger’s sons Denis and Gilbert. A third son, Jean-Jacques is deceased but his son-in-law Didier Negron is the current winemaker. Denis and his son Julien oversee the farming while Gilbert and his niece, Delphine run the offi ce. It is quite the family affair!
The size of the domaine has grown slowly over the years with 18 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape, 8 hectares in Lirac and 8 hectares in Côtes-du Rhône.

the Côtes du Rhône Rhône By Roger Sabon is terrific, medium-bodied, sweetly fruited effort that offers ample kirsch, raspberry, spice and dried flower aromas and flavors.
