User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Roger Sabon

Winemaker's Notes:

"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+. ...96" WA 10/12 "As with the 2011, the 2010 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Prestige shows lots of similarities to the Cuvée Réservée, yet has better tannin (which is saying something), as well as an old vine sappiness to the fruit and a touch more barrique. A blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, and 5% Counoise and Vaccarese that is from 90+ year-old vines and aged in foudre and 1-year-old demi-muids, it has thrilling aromatics of kirsch liqueur, black raspberry, melted licorice, graphite, and copious amounts of spice and garrigue that just come soaring from the glass. Full-bodied, concentrated, and vividly fresh and focused, with masses of polished tannin and an elegant texture, this rock star 2010 needs 3-5 years of bottle age, yet will evolve gracefully for 2 decades or more...95" RR 10/12
