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 wine-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 wine-s of the vintage. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15+ years.

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. 830 cases made. -JM

Very dark in color and opaque towards the rim. A shade more weight on this medium-bodied wine which also finds a hint of brett and dark spice on the nose. This classy wine is full of blackberry and is not as tense as the "Reserve" and the finish is soft with slightly more tannins. Best from 2019-2022.
