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 we only have a few left!

Unquestionably the deepest, richest wine in the lineup, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Le Secret des Sabon offers sensational notes of blackberries, cassis, crushed rocks, graphite, and bouquet garni. Full-bodied, ultra-fine, seamless, and pure, it has more elegance and purity than the 2010 and is reminiscent of the 2001. It's a gorgeous, extraordinary, layered, seamless Châteauneuf-du-Pape to drink over the coming two decades or more.
