2017 Roger Sabon "Réserve" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1442519 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Réserve is largely in the same ballpark and has terrific notes of blackberries, smoked earth, garrigue, and pepper. It’s based on 80% Grenache and 10% Syrah and Mourvèdre brought up in foudre and cuve tronconique tanks. More concentrated as well as focused, it's medium to full-bodied, has brilliant concentration, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish. It's another awesome wine from this estate.  (8/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Inky in hue but resoundingly floral and packed with red berries and black cherries, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is full-bodied and rich, yet it never seems heavy or overdone, with silky tannins and refreshing savory hints of herb, Asian spices and cracked pepper on the lengthy finish. It's probably the best value among the various cuvées this year. (JC)  (8/2019)

94 points Decanter

 There's a little more Grenache in the blend compared to Sabon's Prestige, grown in La Crau and La Grenade, all destemmed, and fermented in half concrete, half tronconic vat. It's then aged in foudre and tronconic vat. The resulting wine is reminiscent of sun-warmed plums and berry fruits in coulis, with a touch of star anise. It's full-bodied and generous, with ripe fruits, good acidity and muscular tannins. The quality fruit and long finish demonstrate the skilled, non-intrusive winemaking here. Should be good value.

94 points Wine Spectator

 Solidly built, with a dark and winey core of black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, laced liberally with bay leaf, tar and black tea accents. Offers a smoldering feel on the finish as the fruit drips over a cast iron note. (JM)  (7/2019)
