Roger Sabon Les Olivets Chateauneuf-de-Pape Rouge 2016


Rhone Red Blends from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France

Winemaker Notes:

Made from the youngest vines on the property with an average age of 50 years, Les Olivets is the largest production Châteauneuf-du-Pape at Domaine Roger Sabon. This Grenache-dominant cuvée also includes about 10% each Syrah and Cinsault and it is aged entirely in foudres and concrete tanks.

Critical Acclaim:
93 Points – Jeb Dunnuck
Made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Cinsault, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Olivets is a winner in this great vintage. Blackcurrants, black olives, licorice, and peppery notes all flow to a ripe, sexy, opulent Châteauneuf-du-Pape that has terrific purity, ripe tannin, and a great finish. It’s a no-brainer purchase.
93 Points –Wine Enthusiast
While the nose of this wine is subdued, whiffs of dark chocolate, coffee and violet extend into the palate, mingling into crisp blackberry and cherry flavors. The palate is robust and mouthfilling yet briskly balanced and anchored by fine, persistent tannins. It’s an elegant but immediately approachable wine to drink now through 2028.
