The smallest production cuvee is the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Le Secret des Sabon, which is a field blend of primarily Grenache that’s brought up all in oak tanks. It sports a deep ruby color, full body, terrific Grenache notes of black raspberries, scorched earth, currants and roasted herbs, sweet tannin and a killer finish. It’s more streamlined and elegant than the 2007 or 2010, but should surpass the 2009, which seems to be on a fast evolutionary track. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
