Winemaker Notes

Heady, concentrated, sweet and long, the Chateauneuf-du-Pape from the Sabon family is remarkably intricate and refined. "La Cuvee du Papet," named for Joseph Sabon, Sr., (papet means "Grandpa") is a selection of the finest lots in the cellar, and is acknowledged by many to be one of the most age-worthy, fascinating wines produced in the appellation.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Has lots of grip, with a very stony undertow carrying notes of wet pebble, sweet earth, licorice, coffee and fig. Pretty lavender and spice box hints flitter in the background as well. Dark and chewy on the finish for now, this needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2009 through 2030.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dark ruby 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Papet exhibits a big, sweet nose of roasted meats, licorice, Provencal herbs, black cherry, raspberry, and currant. The wine is medium to full-bodied, deep, moderately tannic, but very elegant and fresh. It should drink well for close to two decades.

Clos du Mont Olivet
Heady, concentrated, sweet and long, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Sabon family is remarkably intricate and refined.

While the family are strict traditionalists, they still allow us to make our North Berkeley Barrel Selection from wine raised in used Burgundy barrels we provide. Jean-Claude Sabon performs most of the vineyard work himself, while his son Thierry (who has a Ph.D in physics) manages winemaking duties.

Clos du Mont Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape bursts forth from the glass with aromatics of crushed vanilla beans, Mexican chocolate, coffee, and a sandalwood warmth that we’ve come to recognize as the Mont Olivet signature. From 80-year-old vines, our barrel selection wine is usually 65% Grenache, with the remainder Syrah and Mourvèdre.
