" An absolutely profound offering, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige requires 5-6 years of cellaring given its massive concentration and tannic structure. The wine was relatively closed the day I tasted it, but it did display an inky/purple color along with hints of camphor, graphite, creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice and espresso beans. Full-bodied and moderately tannic with gorgeous freshness, glycerin and a skyscraper-like texture, this superb cuvee should be at its finest between 2018-2030+. "

"This has power and guile, with dense layers of blackberry, black Mission fig and black currant fruit lined with substantial but velvety tannins. The long, spice- and black tea–infused finish has a good bass line in the background. Best from 2017 through 2030. From France.- J.M."
