Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Renaissance 2006
[Robert Parker] The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is an even bigger wine than the 2006 more tannic with greater density but again the classic fig garrigue tobacco leaf kirsch and meaty notes. In the finish the tannins kick in. This wine definitely needs 2-3 years of cellaring but is outstanding in richness and depth and should age nicely for 15 or more years. In most years there are between 1000 and 1500 cases of the Reserve. One might think that four separate cuvees of Chateauneuf du Pape is a bit much but Jean-Jacques Sabon and his family continue to provide reference point wines at all different levels as this is one of the top estates in Chateauneuf du Pape.
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.
