I’d be pleased to order for you. Just let me know what you would like and to which LCBO store you would like it sent.

Domaine Roger Sabon
Two red bargoons and three Châteauneuf du Pape.

2020 Le Sabounet – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 232438     $15.10 the bottle

This overachieving Vin de France, a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, is an entry-level wine bearing a Mediterranean character with great body and expressive fruit. The grapes were hand-picked and destemmed and vinified in the usual Sabon fashion. It is a pretty deep purple with vibrant aromas of ripe red fruit, garrigue, toast and liquorice. It is harmonious, smooth and delectable and is meant to be consumed in the short-term. A veritable bargain if ever there was one!

2020 Rhône By Roger Sabon – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 232388     $19.45 the bottle
The 2020 Rhône By Roger Sabon is another Côtes du Rhône success from Domaine Roger Sabon. It is made from 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Cinsault. The grapes were destemmed and hand sorted.

It is a brick red colour with pure aromas of raspberries, ripe cherries, smoked meat, Provençal spices and minerals. It is well-balanced with silky tannins and lots of red and black fruit flavours and very elegant! 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.

2019 Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Les Olivets’ – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 232412     $46.45 the bottle
This seductive beauty is made form 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Cinsault from vines averaging 50 years of age.

A bright ruby colour with aromas of ripe black cherries, blueberries, raspberries and exotic spices, it is forward and supple. It is a full-bodied, silky textured wine, finishing warm and lush. Very limited production. Needs decanting at present and will last at least a decade. Quite the Châteauneuf du Pape bargain

2019 Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Réserve’ – 16.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 775791     $54.65 the bottle
This beauty from one of Châteauneuf du Pape’s top producers is made from 80% Grenache and equal parts Syrah and Mourvèdre. A bright ruby colour, it offers up heady aromas of Morello cherries, raspberries, blueberries and green olives with nuances of humus and crushed stones. It is full-bodied and lush with silky fresh tannins, ending with a flourish of dried spices (allspice, clove and star anise). It will pair magnificently with all kinds of roasts and grilled meats. Ideally it should rest a while in the cellar, but if temptation is too great, decant a few hours before enjoying. It will keep nicely for at least a dozen years.

Just 1 bottle now, but there are 12 more.

2019 Châteauneuf du Pape 'Prestige' – 15.5% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 314715     $76.00 the bottle
This premium Châteauneuf du Pape from one of the appellation’s finest producers is made from 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% other reds.

A bright ruby-garnet colour, there is a purity of fruit to this wine that’s remarkable year after year. The 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Prestige’ showcases a rich, elegant nose of stewed cherries and blueberries, toast, sweet spices and black olives. The mouth is full and warming, backed by subtle power and a gentle structure. Full-bodied, creamy and lush yet bright, intense and long on the finish. A prime candidate for roast lamb, it has great ageing potential but can be enjoyed now if decanted for a few hours before consuming. It is a terrific effort. Wine Spectator

Sleek, dark and winey, with nice flow and cut to the raspberry and blackberry puree flavors, infused with dark tea and carried by a graphite edge. Lingering anise and fruitcake notes sparkle through the finish. Beautifully done. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Vaccarèse. Drink now through 2036. 94 points James Molesworth - October 2021

Domaine Palon
Two terrific Vacqueyras from Domaine Palon.

2019 Vacqueyras ‘Blanc du Bary’ – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 112796      $29.75 the bottle

Domaine Palon Vacqueyras blanc 2018
This luscious, refreshing white was crafted from 80% Clairette and 20% Grenache Blanc, both hand-picked from vines averaging almost fifty years of age. The yield was 30 hl/ha!

It is a clear, bright yellow-gold colour with a vibrant nose of pineapples, grilled almonds, peaches, pears, honeysuckle, vanilla, exotic spices, toast and minerals. It is very smooth and extremely well balanced - lots of fruit offset by a gorgeous acidity. It is fresh, complex and rich with wonderful flavours of peaches and pears. It would be perfect, served at about 8°C, with trout almandine, shell fish, fish, goat cheese and rich poultry dishes. Drinking well now and will keep for up to 5 years.

2019 Vacqueyras Rouge – 15.0% Alc./Vol.        LCBO Product No. 112788     $29.75 the bottle

Domaine Palon Vacqueyras rouge 2018
This gorgeous, medium-bodied wine is made from 75% Grenache (2019 was a superb vintage for Grenache), 15% Mourvèdre and 10% Syrah, hand-picked from vines averaging almost fifty years of age. The yield was under 30 hl/ha. The Mourvèdre and Syrah were aged in large oak casks for twelve months.

It is a deep, pure garnet with powerful aromas of plums, prunes, raspberries, black cherries, currants, new leather, Proven çal spices with a note of black pepper and cloves. In the mouth it is fresh and lively with surprising complexity and excellent balance. And, oh those delicate, silky Palon tannins. This wine has lots of character, depth and substance and will go beautifully with roasted fowl and charcuterie. This lovely wine is a real pleasure to drink right now and will continue to be so for at least another 7 years.

La Princesse de Malijay is a delightful wine - its nose is very expressive with apricot, peach and a hint of citrus. The mouth is lively, crisp and fruity. A fine white to sip at leisure, it will also pair beautifully with charcuterie, tapas or grilled fish. A pleasure to drink now, this crowd pleaser will keep quite happily for another two years.

I contribute regularly about our experiences in the wild, wacky and wonderful world of wine to a delightful lifestyle blog called Gentleman’s Portion. The latest is "Fizz for the Festive Season". Please join me and my fellow contributors, Nigel Napier-Andrews and David Moorcroft, as we regale you with a good helping of everything great in life

Here's how works. We will supply the LCBO with selected wines and you or anyone else in Ontario can order and pay for them on-line via the ‘' site. The major benefit to you is that the wines will already be here at the LCBO warehouse and will be delivered in a short amount of time. By paying a $12 delivery fee, they will ship it (regardless of quantity as long as the order is for $50 or more) by way Canada Post to any address in Ontario and it will be delivered within four business days. Or, you can avoid the shipping fee by having the wine sent to any LCBO store you designate. The store will call you once it is ready to be picked up. This process will take from one to two weeks (possibly up to four weeks in remote areas). Another benefit is that you will no longer have to provide us with the LCBO Lab Waiver email.

Please get in touch with me if you have any questions, would like additional information or would like my help ordering your wine. The LCBO will assist with any post-ordering issues. Contact them at ‘helloLCBO'.
