More rich and round than the '10 Les Olivets the 2010 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Réservée looks to be a beauty. Showing loads of richness and texture as well as beautiful concentration medium to full body vibrant acidity and a blockbuster finish this should benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring and then drink well for a decade after that.

This is gorgeous, with lush linzer torte, boysenberry pâte de fruit and plum sauce notes that captivate, while anise, Lapsang souchong tea and singed apple wood notes fill in the background. The long finish is fleshy and driven. Best from 2016 through 2030. – JM

Ripe and harmonious, with a smoky quality and a medicinal touch to its plum and bitter cherry flavors. On the wild side but shows very good sweetness. Finishes with building tannins and firm grip, leaving a spicy note behind.
