Cave Roger Sabon – 21/05/2012

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2011
Nice juicy green fruit nose, slight floral edge. Good volume and texture, freshness, pear dried peach and apple. Good balance, alcohol well handled, depth and expression, delicate fruit.

Cotes-du-Rhone 2010
Classic CDR spice, earthy savouriness, good cured meat notes with blackcurrants. Very full bold juicy and warm, mouth-filling fruit , sweet plump and juicy, very generous and plummy, not in the least bit subtle. Lingering spiciness on the palate.

Lirac 2010
More ruby juby and floral fruit-sweetness, violets honey and sweet smoky ham. Soft velvety opulent and concentrated on the palate, generous forgiving tannins, subtle spice, extension, breadth and freshness.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Reserve 2009
More subtle closed nose, integrated oak and earth elements, wonderful concentration yet elegance. Subtlety, complexity of oak earth, savoury spice, almost like a four-course meal. Plump berries, fine tannins, extension on the back palate, approachable yet ageable.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee Prestige 2009
More oak influence, chocolate & banana jaffle, darker berries, jammier concentration. Fuller more extractive, oakier texture, still very elegant balance, good freshness and approachability.

Le Secret de Sabon 2006
Very subtle and restrained maturity, still bright in the berry notes, not plummy or fat at all. Juicy and concentrated, full and weighty, purity of fruit, well managed oak and alcohol, concentrated acidity, but still needs a lot of time.
