2015 Roger Sabon "Les Olivets" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1320284 90-92 points Vinous

 Vivid ruby-red. Mineral- and spice-tinged red fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied lavender and white pepper. Concentrated yet lively on the palate, offering intense raspberry and spicecake flavors and a subtle herbal quality that builds on the back half. Shows very good clarity and mineral lift on the finish, which is framed by silky, even tannins that fold smoothly into the juicy fruit. (JR)  (3/2017)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Pretty, with silky plum, cassis and raspberry fruit flavors lined with a light anise thread. Twinges of incense and iron show through the refined and perfumed finish. Drink now through 2030. (JM)  (10/2017)

 The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Olivets is the entry level effort from young vines and is a blend of 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Cinsault, raised in oak tanks and foudre. Olive, leafy herbs, black cherries, and forest floor notes all emerge from this charming, elegant, forward effort that has plenty to love. (JebDunnuck.com)  (10/2017)

A more classically rustic yet charming style. Notes of red and black fruit macerated together with a beautiful sandalwood edge. One of the great values of the vintage.

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.


- 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.
