2020 Clos St Antonin Cotes du Rhone

91 Points James Suckling
In stock
A lush and smooth Cotes du Rhone from the famous Sabon family. A blend of Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah from 30-50 years old vineyards. This richly fruited red is dominated by the gently dark berry of ripe Grenache, along with charming expressions of Mediterranean herbs and spice. Soft, succulent and satisfying it's best to keep this stocked up!

Its Origins

This is a new project of Isabelle Sabon and her father, Aimé, of Domaine de la Janasse, who purchased this 15 hectare domain in 2014. The estate, itself, is located in Jonquières just north of Courthézon. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape will be made from fruit drawn from two hectares of vines in the prime La Crau and Font du Loup vineyards, which were part of Domaine de la Janasse. Those holdings are being folded into Clos St.-Antonin in anticipation of the usual French succession issues that will ensue when Isabelle and her brother, Christophe, take over Domaine de la Janasse from their father.

What The Critics Say

91/100 James Suckling

"Aromas of dark cherries, dark chocolate, mocha and tapenade. Medium body with fine tannins. Round and fruity with good volume and balance, and a juicy finish. Drink now."

90/100 Jeb Dunnuck

"All the 2020s showed beautifully at this address. Black raspberries, peppery herbs, garrigue, and graphite notes all emerge from the 2020 Côtes Du Rhône, a medium-bodied, rich, structured wine that has plenty of structure and depth. It will keep for 4-6 years."
