Long regarded as a reference point for this magnificent appellation of world renown, Roger Sabon is a great source of traditional Ch?teauneuf-du-Pape where the expression of fruit and terroir is everything and oak is treated with caution. Sabon makes wines of concentration, flesh and finesse utilising 70 year old foudr?s for elevage and second use barriques.
Rh?ne red blends typically make for very food-friendly wines. These can work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes, playing equally well with beef, pork, lamb or game. Braised beef cheeks, grilled steak or sausages, roasted pork and squab are all fine pairings.
