2006 Roger Sabon "Les Olivets" Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Previously $50)

SKU #1063611 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The succulent, Provencal 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Olivets possesses loads of black cherry fruit, spice, and garrigue, a roasted meatiness, and firmer tannins than in 2007. (RP)  (10/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Ruby-red. Seductive scents of red berries, lavender and herbs, with a gently smoky undertone. The palate features deeper kirsch and dark berries and a gentle note of garrigue The sweet finish features gentle tannins and very good thrust. Pretty tasty right now, but also has the balance to age.  (1/2009)

90 points Wine Spectator

 There's lots of spice and toast up front, followed by dark plum sauce, fig, graphite and fruitcake notes on the racy palate. A graphite edge wins out on the finish.  (11/2008)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
