Overview

North of the village of Courthézon and just a stone’s throw away from the eastern border of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Christophe and Isabel Sabon farm a 15-hectare plot of old vines on gravelly, red clay soil. With similar soils, elevation and aspect to Châteauneuf, it is treated in the cellar with the same care and respect, it’s no wonder that when tasted blind many would confuse this wine for Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Isabelle Sabon describes Terre d’Argile in this short video from our friends at Jysk Vin.
