$199.95
JD95-97

Easily one of the top 10 luxury cuvées in all of Châteauneuf, this is a special little gem. It’s varietal makeup remains a secret, but it is known that the vines are over 100 years old, and it’s primarily made of Grenache. Dunnuck loves this wine’s “Kirsch liqueur, spring flowers, violets, garrigue and toasted bread notes all give way to a full-bodied, ethereally textured, seamless, yet concentrated style.” Act fast to secure your case!

I always find a purity and voluptuousness in this tiny field blend from Sabon, and this 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon is no exception. Kirsch liqueur, spring flowers, violets, garrigue and toasted bread notes all give way to a full-bodied, ethereally textured, seamless, yet concentrated style. I miss some of the over the top exuberance this cuvée has shown in the past, yet this is still an incredible wine!
