The Domaine Roger Sabon is a wine producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the southern Rhône Valley in France. The winery is located almost in the centre of the village of Chateauneuf itself. They have vineyards in the Chateauneuf AOC / AOP with additional land in other appellations in the southern Rhone valley (Cotes du Rhone, Lirac). They make a range of different wines under various cuvée names: Les Olivets, Réserve, Prestige, Le Secret des Sabon, Renaissance…
They use mainly the grenache grape variety and add varying portions of syrah, mourvèdre, cinsaut, terret, counoise, vaccarèse, muscardin vines.
Domaine Roger Sabon in Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a true family domaine. Roger Sabon created the domaine in 1952. His three sons Jean-Jacques, Denis and Gilbert are all involved and now also Julien and Delphine, children of Denis, and Didier Négon, oenologist and married to Séverine, Jean-Jacques’ daughter, work at the domaine. The family has 17 hectares in the appellation of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. They also have vineyards of the other side of the river Rhône, in Roquemaure. 12 hectares are in the appellation of Lirac and 6 hectares in Côtes-du-Rhône. They also make some nice and easy-to-drink vin de table from 10 hectares. The aim of the family Sabon is to make wines with a good concentration and the work start in the vineyard with low yields.
