Roger Sabon Chateaneuf du Pape Les Olivets has aromas and flavors of fruit and spices. It has a harmonious mouth with silky tannins. It is versatile wine that pairs well with red or white meat.
Blend: 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Cinsault
"Rock-solid, with layers of fig, boysenberry and blackberry pâte de fruit supported by a smoldering tobacco note and backed by a long, ganache-framed finish. Offers ample stuffing and grip, with the tannic spine of the vintage."
"The opaque ruby/purple-tinged 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Les Olivets may be the finest Les Olivets the Sabons have yet made. It possesses full-bodied power as well as lots of kirsch, Provencal herb, balsam wood and foresty notes in a long, rich, textured format that builds incrementally in the mouth, finishing with a lot of glycerin and fruit."
