Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape les Olivets 2011
"Moving to the 2011s, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape les Olivets (80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault) is a classic Southern Rhone, with big aromas of saddle leather, garrigue, cured meats and sweet blackberry fruit. Slightly dry and chewy on the palate, with medium-bodied richness, it’s a good effort that should be consumed over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2019." WA 10/13
