Earl Domaine Roger Sabon Roger Sabon Prestige Châteauneuf du Pape Rouge 2008
Most Exciting Wine of The<br/>Vintage <br/>I was very impressed with this wine when I tried it at the domaine last month.<br/>Still a little closed on the nose, but lovely rich black fruit on the palate,<br/>the Mourvedre shining through at present. Beautiful weight and balance, this<br/>has great class and style and a long elegant finish. <br/>(Chris Pollington, Fine Wine Sales Advisor) <br/> <br/>Grenache dominates in all the best ways here, affording delicious sweet red and<br/>black fruit, with the Syrah and Mourvèdre adding complexity with hints<br/>of licorice, bay leaf and thyme. Dense but not overworked, the wine has an<br/>admirable depth and a confident finish. <br/>(Simon Field MW, Rhône Buyer)
