Overview

Domaine Roger Sabon sources its white varieties from the lieu-dit of La Crau Ouest on sandy and chalky soils. Here the main varieties are Roussanne and Grenache Blanc (about 30% each) and slightly less Clairette and Bourboulenc (20% each) – but depending on the vintages these percentages change slightly. Each variety is harvested by hand when it is ripe, and then gently pressed with the juice going into a 25hl French oak vat where the wine ferments and ages before bottling in the spring after the harvest.
