2010 Roger Sabon "Secret de Sabon" Châteauneuf-du-Pape 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1443127 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark If you can find any of the 150 or so cases made, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon represents the essence of Chateauneuf du Pape, perhaps the essence of wine. It boasts an inky/purple color as well as a fabulous, intricate nose of blue, black and red fruits, graphite, chocolate, charcoal, forest floor, spring flowers and a touch of garrigue. Unbelievably concentrated, to the point of being viscous and nearly over the top, the wine is sensationally rich and pure with a nearly endless finish. There is plenty of tannin, but it is largely obscured by the luxuriousness of the wine’s high glycerin and intense fruit. Forget this beauty for 3-5 years and drink it over the following three decades or more. This is a magnificent Chateauneuf du Pape although it is impossible to say it is better than some of the previous blockbusters made at Domaine Roger Sabon, including the 1998, 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007 Secret des Sabon. Drink through 2045. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2012)

98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of close to 100% Grenache (the blend is a Secret) that comes from two parcels of 100-year-old vines, the tiny production (first vintage was 1998) 2010 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon is a gorgeous Châteauneuf-du-Pape any way you look at it, and certainly, it is up there with the top handful of wines in the vintage. Showing extraordinary aromatics of kirsch liqueur, graphite, crushed flowers, spice-box, and red licorice, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, seamless, yet voluptuous texture, incredible mid-palate concentration, and masses of tannin. Straight-up sexy and powerful, yet also elegant and with loads of finesse and class, this blockbuster needs upwards of a decade of cellaring, yet will shine for 20+ years. 98+ Inner quote mark (9/2012)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very tight, with notes of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and currant preserves all coiled at the core, framed by details of black tea, bergamot and anise. The finish picks up a sleek iron note to accompany the perfumy edge. Very long despite the backwards profile. Should be a stunner with age. Best from 2017 through 2035.
