Roger Sabon 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape

$ 67.99

Winemaker Notes

A tremendously vigorous wine with a warm and inviting intensity. The very bright ruby ??announces aromas of olive green, humus that prolongs a fleshy mouth, warm, kirsch with fresh and silky tannins.

Blend: 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator

A dense, powerful red, with a vein of graphite coursing through sappy black fruit and melted licorice. Shows charred sandalwood and a bitter kick of herbs and iodine that offset the ripeness, with tannic grip through the smoky finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Black raspberries and flowers gently intertwine on the nose of the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige, a Grenache-dominated blend drawn from the lieux-dits of les Brusquières and Cabrières. Full-bodied and silky, it's dense and rich yet finishes fresh, adding seemingly contradictory hints of dark chocolate.
