A violet hint gives way quickly to a core of lightly steeped plum and raspberry fruit, all inlaid with a singed mesquite note. Echoes of smoldering tobacco leaf and juniper check in on the finish. Shows good range. Best from 2017 through 2024. 224 cases imported.

Product Description:

WINERY:
"In the early 20th century, Seraphin Sabon married Marie Jausset, daughter of Romain and Marie-Angelie Brunel. Born in Serignan of Comtat, North of Orange in the Vaucluse, he took on and expanded his wife's family business - which dates back to 1560. Marie has three sons - one of which is Roger who founded the Domaine in 1952 in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. In 1973, Roger expanded the business for the first of several times, by investing with his sons, Jean-Jacques, Denis & Gilbert."

"Since 2001, vinification is in the care of Didier Negron, son-in-law of Jean Jacques Sabon. Denis and his son Julien take care of the fields. Delphine, daughter of Denis is often in the reception. The wines of the Domaine are the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the winemaker and each portion of the land. Didier and Jean-Jacques maintain the old traditions and alchemy of the wine cellar revealing the secrets and subtle potentialities of the vines. Their winemaking involves a century-old savoir faire that preserves and expresses the different aromatic nuances of each variety of grape." -Importer
