Welcome to Family Sabon de Rocheville estate.
We are located in Châteauneuf du Pape and Nyons . in the south-East of France in the South of the Rhône Valley, near Avignon. We make two appellations. We produce organic wine in A.O.P. Côtes du Rhône, but for A.O.C Châteauneuf du Pape is the farming eco-Friendy.
The vines cover 11 hectares around the estate. The vineyards grow on Nyons Hillsides. The vines grow on different soils in Côtes du Rhône: At the foot of hillsides there is send. At the top of the hillsides is clay. Usually, we blend several grapes to make the wine. In white Côtes du Rhône we blend Viognier with Roussane and Marsanne. In Rosé Côtes du Rhône we blend Syrah with Cinsault and Grenache. In the Red Côtes du Rhône we blend Grenache with Syrah. Usually, the wine making is traditional. Except premium wine, the cuvee “GYPA”, it is a mix of know-how Rocheville and Sabon families, we vinify the wine with the stalk. The ageing is concrete tank for red, and for white and rosé wine is thermo-regulated stainless steel vat. Every wine are filter with tangential filter. Usually, wine profile is light and fruity, it’s pleasure with summer food. Every Côtes du Rhône are ready to drink now but for premium It’s better to keep between 3 and 5 years.
