Cotes du Rhone Roger Sabon 2019

£12.99 GBP

One of Robert Parker’s regular buys this is a winery on top form, Didier the winemaker has been producing this since 2004. This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Dark berry fruits with structure, awesomely balanced with fresh acidity. This is top Rhône.

The Sabon family is an ancient and well-regarded name in Châteauneuf-du-Pape first mentioned in documents dating to 1540. Today the domaine owns just over 14 hectares. Farming is sustainable and is spread around the key regions of the southern rhone (Lirac, Chateauneuf-du-Pape etc.)

A classic blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah - its fermented in tank and is all about the fruit. Lots of black berry and herbal notes and a slightly earthy edge
