Domaine Palon
Three superb wines from a terrific vintage.

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.
34 bottles currently available, 24 in reserve.

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.

It is a pure purple with a lustrous sheen and offers up pronounced aromas of ripe blackberries, black cherry jam, plums, pepper, roasted coffee beans, garrigue, pepper, licorice and a note of cocoa. It is big and velvety in the mouth with gentle tannins and a long, perfumed finish. Served just below room temperature, this most impressive wine will go perfectly with magrets de canard, wild game, roasts and medium cheeses. Decant at least an hour before drinking. It will cellar well for at least 10 years.

Domaine Roger Sabon
Two marvellous reds from a top Southern Rhône producer.

2020 Rhône By Roger Sabon – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 232388     $19.40 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.
32 bottles are available; 24 in reserve.

2020 Lirac By Roger Sabon – 14.5% Alc./Vol.                                $26.80 the bottle LCBO Product No. 314699

Robert Parker noted that Domaine Roger Sabon is one of only five “Excellent” Lirac producers. He went on to say, “A sleepy village next to Tavel, Lirac appears to be emerging from the shadows of oblivion. More and more of the top estates are producing better and better wines.”

This Lirac from a stellar producer is made from 70% Grenache and equal parts Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignan. Aged in large oak foudres for about six months, this lovely, dark ruby wine exhibits zesty aromas of sweet raspberries, blackberries and garrigue with a hint of pepper and butterscotch. The red and black fruit persist in the mouth. It is elegantly complex, very long with a beautiful smooth tannic structure. It will go wonderfully with roasts and wild game. This needs a bit of time in the decanter before consuming. It will keep happily and evolve nicely over the next seven years or so.

18 bottles available on; 11 in reserve.

2019 Châteauneuf du Pape ‘Les Olivets’ – 16.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 232412     $47.05 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.
33 bottles currently available.

Follow My Vinous Adventures on Gentleman's Portion

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 ‘ A Tasting to Remember (or not!)’. 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'.
