The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape reveals classic kirsch liqueur notes intermixed with spice box, licorice, blackberries, and smoke. It is medium to full-bodied and elegant yet authoritatively flavorful and beautifully textured. Sabon always ages the Grenache component in old foudres, but keeps his Syrah and Mourvedre in small barrels.

Deep ruby. Fresh raspberry and strawberry aromas are elegant and precise. Bright, racy and poised, with sweet red fruit and gentle mineral flavors and a distinctly silky texture. Finishes impressively pure and long, with precise red fruit flavors.

The 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape, which is 80% Grenache aged in tank or foudre and the rest, Mourvedre and Syrah, aged in small barrels, is a strong effort. Dense ruby/purple with a sweet nose of flowers, blackberries, sweet raspberry liqueur and Provencal herbs, it is dense, rich, medium to full-bodied, but pure, stylish, and delicious already. It should continue to evolve for a dozen or more years.

Dark red. Lush and open on the nose, showing aromas of spicy red berries and cassis accented by subtle notes of violet and garrigue Quite suave and elegant in texture, with the deep, round berry flavors gaining weight as they open in the glass. Finishes supple and gently tannic.

Dark and concentrated, with solid grip for the vintage helping to push the black fig, currant, mocha, bittersweet cocoa and Turkish coffee notes through the long, juicy finish. Drink now through 2028.

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape has a deep black/purple color and a sweet nose of charcoal, black cherries, raspberry, and some Provencal herbs and pepper. In the mouth itandrsquo;s tannic and clearly a vin de garde with refreshing acidity, real vibrancy, but surprising power and length. As Christophe Sabon said, andldquo;Itandrsquo;s a wine that comes across as feminine because of the high acids and low pH, but then the finished alcohol is close to fifteen percent!andrdquo; Give this wine 3andndash;5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following fifteen as it will be extremely long-lived.

The dense purple-colored 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape, 80% foudre-aged Grenache and 20% Syrah and Mourvedre aged in small barrels, offers a beautiful bouquet of blackberries, roasted meats, sweet herbs, and new saddle leather. Full-bodied and super-concentrated with no hard edges, it should drink beautifully for 12-15 years.
