Food Pairings for Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée
The nose showed rich red and black berries with savory mushroom and meaty notes, a hint of pepper and herbal tea leaves. On the palate it was medium bodied with firm structure buried beneath intense red cherry fruit, cinnamon spice, and led to a long, long palate staining finish. It's enjoyable now with a short decant, yet should age and improve effortlessly for 7 - 10 years. (94 points)
The nose was dark and brooding with black raspberry, seared meat, peppery spice, cedar, earth tones and hints of menthol. On the palate it was medium-bodied and rich yet structured with dense, ripe blackberry, plum reduction, and exotic spices. Dark fruit saturated the senses throughout the long finish as fruit slowly melted from memory leaving hints of tannin and spice. I immediately fell in love with this wine. After an hour-long decant, the nose began to pulsate with dark, rich fruits. Although this is young, it can be enjoyed now, but truly needs a number of years to really shine. And shine it should, this was one of the most balanced CdP's I've tasted from the 2010 vintage.
External Reviews for Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée
Once again the Sabons have hit a home run with their 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige. Opaque purple-hued with a full-bodied mouthfeel, massive concentration, abundant tannin and good acidity, it will not be as drinkable early on as the 2009 Prestige. The 2010 possesses some of the structural characteristics of the 2005, and thus requires 5-6 years of patience. It should keep for an atypically long time for a Chateauneuf du Pape andmdash; 25andndash;30 years. It is a brilliant, majestic, massive Chateauneuf du Pape from the Sabons.
An absolutely profound offering, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige requires 5andndash;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 2018andndash;2030+.
This has power and guile, with dense layers of blackberry, Black Mission fig and black currant fruit lined with substantial but velvety tannins. The long, spice- and black tea-infused finish has a good bass line in the background. Best from 2017 through 2030.

An elegant, stylish version, with mulled red cherry and red currant fruit hanging gracefully through the tea-, sandalwood- and mineral-infused finish. Nice latent grip checks in at the very end.
