Wine Advocate 90 points - Showing the vintage beautifully, the 2011 Cotes du Rhone Villages Cuvee Sabrine comes from vineyards located just to the north or Orange. Comprised of roughly 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre, it delivers gorgeous Grenache fireworks, with kirsch, ground herbs, spice-box and pepper-like aromas and flavors flowing to a medium-bodied, sweetly fruited and seamless profile on the palate. I don?t think it will make old bones, and should be consumed rather quickly, yet it is a gorgeous effort that will dish out loads of pleasure over the coming 2-4 years. (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
This wine is a blend of 75% 40+ year old Grenache blended with 30+ year old Syrah, and a dollop of Mourvedre. The vinification is classic Brunel with 80% of the grapes de-stemmed to ensure the purity and roundness of the Grenache fruit. This tiny cuvee is entirely made in stainless steel tank and fashioned in a supple, open style with a powerful core of fruit.

Producer
The Neveu family, viticulteurs father and son, have been based in the heart of the Chavignol vineyards for generations, and today carry on the tradition of the great Sancerrois vignerons. Valerie (Andre Neveuís daughter), and her husband Thomas, now run the domaine that extends to about 13 hectares of vines of AOC Sancerre red, white and rose. They harvest, vinify and sell everything themselves.
