Winemaker's Notes

This wine had flavors of red and black fruit and spices. It will keep well for at least 20 years and will exhibit hints of mushrooms and leather over time. Pairs well with veal, white meats, mushrooms, and cow's milk cheeses or Banon.

Blend: 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

Critical Acclaim

"Richly textured, with dense linzer torte, cassis and fig paste notes, but also perfumy, with toasty anise and smoky black tea notes that weave through the finish. Offers a lovely combination of power and finesse. Best from 2012 through 2022."
93 Points

"Even deeper-colored with more purple hues, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is composed of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Cinsault from nearly 70-year-old vines. This brilliant effort is one of the finest Reserves the Sabons have yet made. Dense and complex, it offers up notes of incense, charcoal, roasted herbs, meat juices, bouquet garni and lots of black currant and black cherry fruit."
