Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon 2005 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98)

The best showing yet from this cuvee (I rated in 96+ earlier this year), the 2005 Châteauneuf du Pape Le Secret de Sabon is a brilliant success and easily in the top handful of wines in the vintage. Made from mostly Grenache (it’s a field blend and the exact blend is unknown) and aged 18 months in demi-muids, it offers a full-bodied, powerful, yet perfectly balanced feel on the palate to go with knockout notes of black raspberry, currants, garrigue, licorice and Provencal herbs. Still youthful, yet drinking spectacularly today, it will continue to knock your socks off for another decade or more.

Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve 2005 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (90)

The 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is an even bigger wine than the 2006, more tannic, with greater density but again the classic fig, garrigue, tobacco leaf, kirsch, and meaty notes. In the finish, the tannins kick in. This wine definitely needs 2-3 years of cellaring, but is outstanding in richness and depth and should age nicely for 15 or more years. In most years there are between 1,000 and 1,500 cases of the Reserve.
