Domaine Roger Sabon is one of the great names of Chateauneuf du Pape and is situated in the heart of the village. Jean Jacques (who looks like Sven Goran Erikson) handed over all wine making to his son Didier in 2004. The wines get great revenues from his simple Cotes du Rhone, Lirac and of course his range of Chateauneuf. All his wines have an elegance and class that make them drink well young. All have pronounced red fruit flavours but age beautifully, in the case of the top wines over many decades. Sabounet is his vin de table, sold at cellar door. However we tasted it last year and thought it so good we got him to bottle some for us! As good as many Cotes du Rhone soft rich and hearty. This wine needs to be drunk young and to be served during family meals or with friends. Will be good with appetizers, charcuterie etc.
