Chateauneuf du Pape les Olivets Roger Sabon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Opaque purple. Suave, highly perfumed scents of fresh raspberry, smoky minerals, candied flowers and peppery spices. Sappy and mineral-driven, offering intense, well-delineated red fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors. Open-knit and supple in texture, with very good finishing persistence and only a hint of tannins...90-92" IWC 01/14 "...fleshy, fruit driven effort that has excellent freshness, good acidity and plenty of texture. Showing nice blackberry, cassis, earth and hints of bouquet garni qualities on the nose, it has outstanding potential and should dish out plenty of pleasure over the coming 6-7 years...89-91" WA 10/13
