2010 Domaine La Milliere Chateauneuf Du Pape Vieille Vignes
"Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2010 Domaine La Milliere Chateauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes is an old vine blend of 60% Grenache and then equal parts Mourvedre, Syrah, Cinsault, and Counoise, that's aged all in foudre and concrete tank. It displays a deep, semi-opaque purple color to go with aromas of crunchy black raspberry, wet stone like minerality, sappy, resinous herbs, licorice, and some exotic spice thrown in for good measure. Full-bodied and structured on the palate, with the textbook 2010 freshness and focus, as well as solid concentration, and a fair dose of ripe tannin, this classic 2010 needed lots of air to shine and continually gained weight and depth over the three days I had the bottle open. There's an elegance and balance to it that will allow it to drink well on release, yet it should ideally be given 5-6 years of bottle age." (06/12) - 91-94 Pts Jeb Dunnuck - The Rhone Report
"Last year, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes did not perform well in my tastings. However, that is not the case this year. It exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a surprisingly supple style, full body, and pure cassis and black cherry fruit intermixed with hints of Provencal herbs/garrigue, lavender and dusty, loamy soil notes. This round, generous, seductive 2010 is a blend of 60% Grenache and the rest equal parts Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Counoise from 85- to 105-year-old vines located in the northwestern sector of the appellation. It should drink well for 10-12 years. I am happy to see that proprietor Michel Arnaud has again turned out one of the best value-priced Chateauneuf du Papes of the appellation." (10/12) - 91 Pts Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby. Ripe red fruits, herbs and fresh flowers on the highly perfumed nose. Lively and precise, with excellent depth and power to its raspberry and cherry flavors. Closes sappy, seamless and long, with lingering floral and spice notes."(01/13) - 91 Pts Josh Raynolds - International Wine Cellar
"60% Grenache,10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault and 10% Counoise. All grapes are de-stemmed. Fermentation and maceration in cement tank for 20-25 days. Maturing at first in cement tanks and then in foudres for 12-18 months." - Importer
"Michel Arnaud has been in charge at the property since 1983, when he took over from his father Aime Arnaud. If you visit the the domain you can also meet Annie or Claudine, sister and mother of Michel. In 1940 the property was purchased by the grandfather of Michel, Fernand Arnaud."
"The total area with vines is 27 ha. 15 ha. is Chateauneuf du Pape, situated near the domain at lieu-dit Cabrieres, 8 ha. are Cotes du Rhone Village or Cotes du Rhone and 4 ha. are Vin du Pays de Orange."
"The fields for Chateauneuf are varying even if they are situated near each other: Slopes or terrasses covered with big stones or with lime stones, some plots are with clay and other plots more sandy."
"The fields are treated by organic methods "agriculture raisonnee"."
"All the Wines (except those of Vin du Pays) are called Vieilles Vignes, and this is reasonable as 95% of the vines are quite old - also those in the fields of Cotes du Rhone." - Importer

2008 Sabon Chateauneuf Du Pape Cuvee Olivets
"Light-bodied, but fresh and pure for the vintage, with tangy red cherry, pomegranate and boysenberry fruit backed by licorice and sweet spice notes. Nicely rounded, with persistent length. Drink now through 2020. 2,325 cases made. -JM" (10/10) - 90 Pts Wine Spectator
"Earthy, sweaty and a little cheese rind to go with the plump red fruit. Sweet and ripe on the palate, but soft and drinkable. Light on the mid palate. Drink from 2010-2014.(RH)", 16.5 out of 20, Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages
"There is rigorous selection of the grapes during the vendage, and vinification with controlled fermentation temperature in the vats. Tannins are more and more extracted over a period of 20 days, using daily 'remontage' (draining some wine out of the bottom of the fermentation vat and pumping it up to the top) and 'delestage' (pumping the juice out of the fermentation vat, keeping it in another vat for a short period of time before pumping it back into the fermentation vat). The wine matures in barrels of 40 hectolitres for a period of 15 months. 50 years vine age." - Importer
Didier Negron and Jean-Jacques Sabon
In the early 20th century, Seraphin Sabon married Marie Jausset, daughter of Romain and Marie-Angelie Brunel. Born in Serignan of Comtat, North of Orange in the Vaucluse, he took on and expanded his wifeâs family business - which dates back to 1560. Marie has three sons - one of which is Roger who founded the Domaine in 1952 in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. In 1973, Roger expanded the business for the for the first of several times, by investing with his sons, Jean-Jacques, Denis & Gilbert. Since 2001, vinification is in the care of Didier Negron, son-in- law of Jean Jacques Sabon. Denis and his son Julien take care of the fields. Delphine, daughter of Denis is often in the reception. The wines of the Domaine are the fruit of an intimate dialogue between the winemaker and each portion of the land. Didier and Jean-Jacques maintain the old traditions and alchemy of the wine cellar revealing the secrets and subtle potentialities of the vines. Their winemaking involves a century-old savoir faire that preserves and expresses the different aromatic nuances of each variety of grape." - Importer
