About Clos du Mont-Olivet
The beginnings of the Clos du Mont-Olivet : Séraphin Sabon is the son-in-law of Romain Jausset, owner in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In 1932 he created the "Clos du Mont-Olivet". The estate was finally given to Joseph, the eldest son of Séraphin. Today, Joseph's grandchildren, Céline, David and Thierry, take care of and manage the estate. The Sabon family makes Rhône wines that enhance freshness and elegance with explosive prowess. Founded in the middle of the 16th century, the estate is now run by the dynamic and talented Thierry Sabon and includes plots of vines over 60 years old in the heart of Châteauneuf.
The wines of Clos du Mont Olivet
The wines are classically styled, with heady, complex aromas and ripe, exuberant, garrigue-like fruit that tastes like the stones that make up the fascinating soils of the region. The wines of southern Rhône rarely speak so clearly and eloquently about their terroir. It has become clear that the quality of Clos du Mont-Olivet has never been higher, and the value represented by their extraordinary range is a bastion of the historic Châteauneuf.
The Le Pied de Baud vineyard is located to the north, while the eastern sector, in the lieu-dit of Mont-olivet, includes Grenache vines over 80 years old, from which the characteristics of La Cuvée du Papet comes. These 9-hectare fields have given their name to the estate.
To the south, they have plots at the Gallimardes. 30 kilometres north of Châteauneuf du Pape, near Bollene, they own 17 hectares of Côtes du Rhône. The estate has a traditional approach to making Châteauneuf du Pape. They only use partial destemming and the barrels or foudres are quite old.
