Thierry, David & Céline Sabon

The name Mont Olivet was first mentioned in 1547. But the real story started in 1902 when family Jausset planted the first 10 hectares. Grapes were sold to the negoce. The last heir of Jausset, Marie, married Séraphin Sabon in 1932. They created a new estate, Clos Mont-Olivet and decided to bottle their own wine. From that, the vineyard made is reputation and became famous in France and England in the 50s. The vineyard stayed in the family until now.

The 50 hectares vineyard is located in the South of Rhône Valley, France. 21 hectares belong to the prestigious appellation of Châteauneuf-Du-Pape, including some of the most thought after plots such as "Palistor" and "Chemin de Sorgues".

The vineyards' orientation, the local climates and the soils are all extremely varied and allow one to adapt the varietal to the particular plot or play on the diverse expression of the same varietal.

Grenache and Syrah followed the most planted grape varieties followed by Roussanne, Mourvedre and Cinsault. The vineyard is farmed according to nature’s cycles, without the use of pesticides or any chemicals.


The red wines of the estate have a lovely freshness and mineral imprint.


As for the white wines, they are elegant, fresh and refined.
