Domaine Roger Sabon Lirac Chapelle de Maillac 2008
The village and commune of Roquemaure where the wine is produced enjoy Saint Valentin's patronage. Does this mean that our Lirac is favoured by lovers? We will leave that to you to find out. In any event, Roquemaure has a long and interesting history. It was at Roquemaure that Clement V, the first Avignon pope, died. During the Middle Ages the village was also an important river port from which barges laden with "Coste du Rhone" wines, produced in our appellations, moved up the river Rhone to the north.
Early 20th century,Seraphin Sabon is getting married with Marie Jausset, daughter of Romain and Marie-Angelie Brunel. Born in Serignan of Comtat, North of Orange, in the Vaucluse region,he takes his wife family's, wich origins dated from 1560. He regularly expands it. Marie gives birth to three sons,one of them is Roger. He founds the Domain in 1952 and now adays more than 15 hectares are located in the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation.
