Roger Sabon founded his eponymous Châteauneuf-du-Pape-based winery in 1952, continuing in the footsteps of his father, founder of Clos du Mont-Olivet. In 1973 Roger’s sons joined the domaine—a true family affair.
The Domaine Roger Sabon sustainably farms 17 hectares of Châteauneuf-du-Pape vines on sandy, limestone soils covered by round stones, or "galets,” unique to the region. The domaine seeks tension and elegance in their wines, hand-harvesting grapes early, fully destemming the fruit, and extending skin contact for nearly a month before aging and bottling the wine.
The Domaine Roger Sabon produces grenache-dominant blends that marry power and elegance. The wines, while rich and lush, also have an attractive energy and grip along with a compelling mix of flavor and complex aromatics of red and dark fruit, spice, and minerality.
