The top wine of this estate is the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape le Secret de Sabon, and the inky-coloured 2012 is a brilliant effort. Possessing a sweet nose of ripe raspberries, kirsch, garrigue and licorice, this beauty hits the palate with full-bodied richness, tons of glycerol and texture, sweet tannin and moderate acidity. It’s already approachable, yet I suspect will improve with another handful of years in the cellar and drink well through 2025.
