About

96

"The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as 75% Grenache & the balance mostly Syrah & smaller parts of other permitted varieties. Crème de cassis, olive tapenade, smoked herbs, & licorice notes all emerge from this remarkably pure, seamless, gorgeously refined & elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It shows slightly more Syrah character, has a multi-dimensional texture, & a layered, elegant style that just begs to be drunk. It can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more."

Product Description:

As with the other cuvées from Roger Sabon, the philosophy behind the Cuvée Prestige is to harvest the Grenache & Syrah early to preserve their natural acidity since the age of these vines – the oldest topping a century in age – will provide plenty of richness & concentration. As a result this wine walks the line between fresh red fruit, & dense black fruit flavors with additional complexity coming from a blend that also includes Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Muscardin & Terret Noir.
