About This Wine

  • PAIRING

    Les Olivets is best served with a juicy and tender baked pork tenderloin seasoned with Provencal herbs and accompanied by roasted root vegetables.
  • WINEMAKER

    Tracing their Southern Rhone Valley roots back to 1540, the Sabon family has a long history in Châteauneuf-du-Pape; in fact, the Sabon family has been in the region for longer than the famed Château de Beaucastel. Patriarch of the family, Seraphin Sabon first bottled wine in the appellation under the family’s name in 1921. Decades later in 1952, Seraphin’s third son created the self-named Domain Roger Sabon. Continuing with the family legacy, the estate is run primarily by family members including Roger’s three sons and sons in law.
  • PRODUCTION

    Expanding slowly over the years, Domaine Roger Sabon now covers 18 hectares in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region comprised mostly of Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault among others. Prior to spending 12-15 months in both French oak barrels and concrete tanks, Les Olivets grapes are plucked from the northeastern part of the appellation where soils are sandier with high levels of limestone. The result is a style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape that is “ethereal and delicate.”
  • POINTS

    92 POINTS! Wine Spectator, 2015 Vintage

    “A silky, perfumed expression of raspberry, cherry and boysenberry fruit, lined with hints of black tea, singed sandalwood and blood orange. Fine-grained tannins and a hint of balsam line the finish. Drink now through 2022.”
