Buy Clos du Mont Olivet Chat du Pape Petit Mont 2011***
Wine Advocate 87 points - Moving to their Chateauneufs and a ripe, supple and easygoing effort, the 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Le Petit Mont offers up loads of ripe cherry and blackberry fruit, olive, leafy herbs and fennel to go with a medium-bodied, up-front profile on the palate. It’s delicious, but won’t make old bones (nor is that the point). Enjoy it over the coming 4-5 years. Drink now-2018. (Oct 2013)

Various sources report that in 1957 a deed was signed before a solicitor which concerneda plot of vines located in 1/2 ad montem Olivetti but it wasn’t until the begining of the XXth century that the association between the Sabon family and this locality was forged. Seraphin Sabon, a native of the the neighbouring village of Serignan du Comtat married Marie, daughter of Romain Jausset, landowner at Chateauneuf-du-Pape. In 1932 they created the 1/2 Clos Mont Olivet Since then the domaine has passed through the hands of Joseph, eldest son of Seraphin and then his children. Today it is Celine, David & Thierry SABON the grandchildren of Joseph who manage the estate.
