Careful readers of our newsletters will have noted the increasing frequency of the name Sablet in our Rhone offers. This as-yet unassuming village is only a Cotes du Rhone for now, but we suspect it’s only a matter of time before it gains an appellation title all its own to match Gigondas and Vaqueyras, the two villages immediately to the south. For now, Sablet remains the best value available in the Rhone Valley. The wines here are dependably savory, a little lighter than the critically acclaimed wines next door, a little more food-friendly, and a lot less expensive. Domaine de la Mavette is the latest example we’ve found, and we couldn’t be happier. The Domaine is a small estate with family roots dating to the nineteenth century. Current owner Jean-Francois Lambert farms organically and takes a simple, hands-off approach in the cellar to let this Cuvee of Grenache and Syrah speak for itself. The aroma of this wine is prototypically Sablet, let by Garrigue, with stewed black cherry fruit, rose scented potpourri, and leather in support. The palate is a warm and generous blend of cherry cordial, salty earth, and all the herbs you might put in a winter stew wrapped in substantial tannins. Wines as well-priced as this generally fall off on the finish, but the Mavette resonates with rustic, earth-tinted fruit.
