In addition to his 97 Point Wine Spectator rating, James Molesworth continues to praise Rotem & Mounir Saouma’s Omnia 2016 via social media. On his Instagram, Molesworth call Saouma’s Châteauneuf “a new paradigm” for the Southern Rhône appellation. He goes on to state that the “next time someone tells you they don’t drink Châteauneuf-du-Pape anymore, just smile. Because that means more Saouma for the rest of us…”

Rotem and Mounir Saouma
Omnia, Latin for “all,” is a wine that attempts to encompass the full diversity of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation, both in its terroir and vinification. Fruit comes from vineyards in all 5 of the Chateauneuf communes (Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Courthezon, Sorgues, Bedarrides and Orange) and aged in foudre, cement and 500 liter barrels.

Burgundy meets the Rhone. An utter respect for tradition, and in some ways a total break. We've watched as Mounir and Rotem Saouma, of Burgundy producer Lucien Le Moine, slowly developed their estate and wines in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and the results today are too extraordinary and distinct to ignore.
