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

Variety: Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Muscardin, Terret Noir

Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Rather Burgundian in feel, with alluring cherry sauce, plum compote and raspberry coulis flavors, backed by a twinge of licorice. A violet hint lingers at the end, giving this additional grace and length. Drink now through 2025. 224 cases imported." – JM (Nov 15, 2015)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige offers a bigger, sweeter, and richer core of fruit to go with medium to full-bodied depth and concentration on the palate. Peppery, Provençal and garrigue-laced, this beautiful 2013 has terrific tannin quality and a great finish. It can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (29th Oct 2015)

92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Full ruby. Smoke-accented blackberry and cherry preserve aromas show excellent clarity and pick up hints of licorice and candied flowers with air. Lush and open-knit, offering gently sweet red and dark berry and spicecake flavors and a hint of smoky minerality. The smoky quality comes back strong on the persistent, floral-accented finish, which is given shape by fine-grained tannins." - Josh Raynolds (February 2016)
