Thereandrsquo;s a slightly chunky edge to the charcoal, roasted fig, mulled plum and black currant notes in this dark. A lacing of espresso and bittersweet cocoa helps add some finesse to the finish. A touch of cellaring should do the rest. Best from 2012 through 2022.

The monumental 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a creative blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest grapes such as Vaccarese, Muscardin, Cinsault, Terret Noir and Counoise. Most of the fruit is aged in foudre, with the Syrah and Mourvedre components aged in new oak. The fabulous 2009 offers an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of charcoal, burning embers, black currants, soy, Asian plum sauce, blackberries and kirsch. The wineandrsquo;s complexity is nearly off the charts. Moreover, once it hits the palate, the high glycerin, silky tannins, low acidity and luxurious concentration provide a compelling drinking experience. This spectacular Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the wines of the vintage. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years.

Tasting Notes:

It is a very complex wine, comprising numerous types of grape. It presents aromas of ripe red and black fruit, spices (clover, pepper) and mushrooms, and, as it ages, of truffles and old leather.

Here we come close to a magnificent wine. A good-natured monster this Chateauneuf-du-Pape is round and rich, supple and strong. It is indisputably elegant, and will effortlessly charm all those who like to share the joys of life.

Aged 16 months in French Oak.
