Roger Sabon Chateauneuf du Pape 'Les Olivets' 2011

Home > Shop > Roger Sabon Chateauneuf du Pape 'Les Olivets' 2011

91 points Wine Spectator

  Lovely cedar, roasted vanilla bean, black tea and steeped plum and blackberry fruit flavors are well-melded in this version, with good underlying structure. Fine-grained tannins carry the finish. Drink now through 2025.   (10/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  Moving to the 2011s, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape les Olivets (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault) is a classic Southern Rhone, with big aromas of saddle leather, garrigue, cured meats and sweet blackberry fruit. Slightly dry and chewy on the palate, with medium-bodied richness, it’s a good effort that should be consumed over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019. A fantastic estate that covers close to 44 acres throughout the appellation, Domaine Roger Sabon was created by Roger Sabon in 1952. The estate was taken over by Roger’s sons (Jean-Jacques, Denis and Gilbert) in 1976, and since 2001, the wines are made by Didier Negron, who is Jean-Jacques’ stepson. The estate produces upward of four red Chateauneufs in a given vintage and one white. In addition, they release a solid Cotes du Rhone and Lirac.   (10/2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

  Opaque ruby. Wild, smoky and meaty, displaying aromas and flavors of dried cherry, licorice and beef jerky. Calms down a bit with air, picking up a sweet floral pastille nuance and a touch of candied raspberry. Finishes on a smoky note, with good cling and slow-mounting tannins.   (1/2013)
