Food Pairings for Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape le Secret des Sabon
Shared a bottle at Vino Paradiso with Trish and Dietra. An excellent example of CdP! Earthiness wrapped in dark fruit flavors of cherry, currant and plum. Nice mineral finish. Needed some time to open up, a shame we couldn't decant. Outstanding - 93 points.

External Reviews for Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape le Secret des Sabon
[96 pts Robert Parker] ''An extremely limited cuvee of around 2'000 bottles the Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret du Sabon is year in and year out one of the top ten Chateauneuf du Papes produced. From vines well over 100 years old mostly from the sector of Chateauneuf du Pape known as La Crau. The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret du Sabon has turned out to be a sublime wine. With the essence of beef blood intermixed with Provencal herbs creme de cassis blackberry and raspberry the wine is dense full-bodied elegant but at the same time very powerful masculine and rich. It is certainly one of the vintage's most compelling wines and needs a good 5-7 years of bottle age. It should last for 30 or more years. Sadly these wines are very limited but should you latch onto a bottle these are great classics of France and of the Rhone Valley. 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. Both 2006 and 2005 have turned out very well at this estate with the 2006s softer and more fruit-forward than the 2005s which are massive bigger wines' especially at the top end for the Prestige and Le Secret.'
