Title Sabon Châteauneuf du Pape Sold Out; Excellent Côtes du Rhône Remain 

Dear Arthur’s Cellar Wine Club Member:

Thanks to you, all of our 2017 Domaine Roger Sabon Châteauneuf du Pape has been sold. But, some of the delightful 2018 Rhône By  Roger Sabon and 2017 Les Notes de Louis from Domaine Giuliani remain for sale by the single bottle on

Please send me a note  if you would like me to order for you (let me know to which LCBO store you would like your wine sent).

2018 Rhône By Roger Sabon – 15.0% Alc./Vol.                                $19.15 the bottle LCBO Product No. 581644 

There are 54 bottles of this little gem available at The 2018 Côtes Du Rhône By Roger Sabon is a forward, charming effort that has loads of black raspberry and blackberry fruits as well as notes of cured meats, spice, and pepper. It has beautiful fruit, medium-bodied, no hard edges, and loads of upfront charm. It's ideal for drinking over the coming 2-4 years. Jeb Dunnuck (8/2019)

Bright cherry and blackberry fruit melds with light savory and lavender notes through the fresh, open-knit finish. Moderate in scale, but showing good energy and persistence. Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Drink now. (JM, Web Only-2019) Wine Spectator

Medium to full-bodied, it will go perfectly with grilled meats, barbeques and charcuterie. It is ready to drink now and will hold beautifully for another four to five years. If you are in the Toronto area you can try this fine wine at Le Sélect Bistro.

2017 ‘Les Notes de Louis’ Côtes du Rhône – 15.5% Alc./Vol.  $18.05 the bottle LCBO Product No: 866210

There are 42 bottles remaining at

This glorious Côte du Rhône is made from almost 100% Grenache - and the Giulianis are very, very talented Grenache growers. This robust beauty is a brilliant ruby colour and exhibits a pronounced, lively nose of raspberries, plums and cherries. In the mouth these persist, accompanied by black currents and hints of pepper and licorice. It is big and wonderfully round and supple with silky tannins and surprising length. This stunner will go marvellously with savoury tarts and grilled meats, in other words, perfect for the BBQ. While drinking brilliantly well now (I’d decant a couple of hours before enjoying), it will keep nicel for at least three or four years. This is terrific stuff.
