The 2015 'Le Secret des Sabon' Châteauneuf-du-Pape instantly opens to stunning aromas of black raspberries, black cherries and dark plums which come together with fresh lavender, exotic spices, herbs and bittersweet chocolate nuances all soaring from the glass. Full-bodied with a gorgeous textural richness, backed by velvety tannins, which glide seamlessly across the palate. Beautifully balanced, with lovely underlying acidity that frames the core of ripe dark fruits, savory herbs and iron character. It continues to impress with outstanding focus and poise through the long, juicy finish. Outstanding now, but also has all the potential to age remarkably well.
