Rhone By Roger Sabon 2010

Member Review by zufrieden:

This is an excellent Cotes-du-Rhone by Sabon - the renowned Chateauneuf-du-Pape producer - and there is sufficient structure (due to the presence of a goodly proportion of Syrah in the blend) to allow for a bit of prudent cellar aging. The nose is fresh and piquant with a hint of wild red fruit from the Pacific Northwest of the USA and Canada. On the palate, there is a lot of acidity - but clean and crisp - just the ticket for meals a la Provencal. Good luck finding this gem.
