Chateau Cabrieres Cuvee Prestige Chateauneuf du Pape 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape was still in tank at the time of this tasting, and it shows slightly better this go-round than last year. Made from 50% Grenache, 20% each of Syrah and Mourvedre, and splash of Cinsault, *it’s a medium-bodied, elegant and downright pretty Châteauneuf that has classic kirsch and sweet red berry fruits, spice and garrigue aromas and flavors*. It shows the approachable, classic style of the vintage and will have 10-12 years of longevity." --The Wine Advocate

External Reviews for Chateau Cabrieres Cuvee Prestige Chateauneuf du Pape

External Review
Vintage: 2010 12/24/2012

The 2010s can be drunk now or cellared for a decade. Both cuveacute;es possess more intensity and richness than their 2011 counterparts. One of the finest wines Chateau Cabrieres has made over recent vintages is the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuveacute;e Prestige. It possesses plenty of sweet black currant, cherry and raspberry fruit intertwined with dusty, loamy soil, pepper and lavender notes. This classic wine of Provence is full-bodied, deep, rich, pure and authoritative. Drink it over the next 10ndash;12 years.

With a very ripe nose of crush fruit, the Prestige cuvée was the most tannic wine I tasted, and was recently bottled. All the raw materials are here. I would like to taste this a year down the road and see how the tannin and oak integrate. Really nicely done with a lot of potential. 2010 is the first vintage under noted consultant Phillipe Cambie. Tasted at the estate.

Glass-staining purple. Oak-accented aromas of black and blue fruits, lavender and olive. Sappy and broad, with deep cherry-vanilla and floral flavors turning smokier with air. Closes on a chewy note, with very good length and lingering vanillin oak. My projected score will look low if this wine is able to absorb its oak.

Vintage: 2007 02/19/2015

This has the tangy, taut drive of 2006, as red currant, raspberry ganache, red licorice and shiso leaf notes race through, carried by riveting acidity. The long, fresh finish has nice minerality. Drink now through 2020.

Vintage: 2007 02/19/2015

The full-bodied, dense 2007 Châteauneuf de Pape Cuvée Prestige exhibits lots of classic garrigue, black currant, black cherry, loamy soil, and resiny pine forest notes. It will benefit from 1–3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15 years.
