Roger Sabon Le Secret 2009I forbindelse med Sabons 2009 vine skrev Parker :
This estate has been at the top of its game for many years and any partisan of Rhone Valley wines (especially the southern Rhone) who has not yet tried a wine from Domaine Roger Sabon should make every effort to do so. They produce four separate Chateauneuf du Pape cuvees and have hit home runs in both 2009 and 2010, the finest back-to-back vintages I have ever tasted from this 42-acre estate run by the large Sabon family, in this case, Jean-Jacques, Julien, Gilbert and Denis. They own 15 parcels spread throughout the appellation, most of them concentrated in the western and eastern sectors north of the village. The brilliant 2009s are among the finest of the vintage.
95-98 Point Robert Parker :
An extremely limited offering is the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon. Representing the essence of Provence and Chateauneuf du Pape, it was produced from yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare and was aged in 600-liter demi-muids. The rich black/purple-hued 2009 boasts notes of smoke, tobacco leaf, creosote, black currants, black cherries, graphite and a scent that made me think of tea-soaked duck. Massive and rich in the mouth, this full-bodied powerhouse needs 3-4 years of cellaring and should last 25-30+ years. Sadly, it is almost impossible to find this extraordinary wine.
