Occasional Wine Note: GSMs are normally more easy drinking wines that go with just about anything or nothing at all, particularly those where Grenache is the primary grape. This Grenache-focused offering is anything but simple and easy. There is a lot going on here from flowers to cherries, licorice, and cocoa. This is a different GSM in a very good way. We've come to expect nothing but delicious wines from Roger Sabon.

  • Wine Spectator

    Critic Score: 94

    A dense, powerful red, with a vein of graphite coursing through sappy black fruit and melted licorice. Shows charred sandalwood and a bitter kick of herbs and iodine that offset the ripeness, with tannic grip through the smoky finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.

  • Wine Advocate

    Critic Score: 93

    A blend of 80% Grenache with 10% each Mourvèdre and Syrah, the 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve marries hints of dried flowers with black cherries and a touch of cocoa. Full-bodied and concentrated, this is less flattering to taste than the Les Olivets at this stage, but it should still be excellent in time.
