Overview

Domaine Roger Sabon owns 6 hectares of vines in the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation just over the Rhône river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here they farm Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah on gravelly clay soils. A short maceration and aging in tank and neutral wood preserves the juicy red and black fruit character of the wine. If you’re looking for a perpetual sleeper that is also a bargain in our portfolio… well, let us know if you think it is something other than this wine.
