The Sabon estate has 16 hectares of vineyards in some of the best sites of Châteauneuf – but they also have 17 hectares on the western side of the river in Roquemaure where this fine Lirac is produced.

 

The wine making is today handled by Didier Negron, the son-in- law of the late Jean Jacques Sabon. The vineyards  are managed by Jean Jacque’s brother Denis and his son Julien.

 

Grenache is predominant as with all the wines of the Domaine. It is blended with Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan.

 

The young wine is aged in large oak foudres for about six months. Very dark in the glass the nose has aromas of black and red fruits as well as spice and tobacco hints. The fruit flavours follow through to the palate that is full and round with soft tannins and warming spice.
