Sourced from the lieux-dits of Les Brusquières and Cabrières, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% other varieties. Tasted blind, it's a big, full-bodied, lush wine. Powered by bold cherry and stone fruit, it shows hints of pepper and clove complexity, plus vibrant citrus zest notes on the long, electric finish. Wow. - JC

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as 75% Grenache and the balance mostly Syrah and smaller parts of other permitted varieties.

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as 75% Grenache and the balance mostly Syrah and smaller parts of other permitted varieties. Crème de cassis, olive tapenade, smoked herbs, and licorice notes all emerge from this remarkably pure, seamless, gorgeously refined and elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It shows slightly more Syrah character, has a multi-dimensional texture, and a layered, elegant style that just begs to be drunk. It can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more.

Intense, with a racy and focused beam of raspberry coulis, cherry preserve and blackberry paste flavors driving through, laced with mouthwatering anise, black tea and singed apple wood notes. The long, graphite-edged finish shows terrific energy. Best from 2020 through 2040. 224 cases imported. –JM

High-toned floral aromas and depth of fruit bodes well for future development. It's full-bodied, but with no heaviness. It has good acidity and some mineral hints on the long finish. Overall the impression is one of great... High-toned floral aromas and depth of fruit bodes well for future development. It's full-bodied, but with no heaviness. It has good acidity and some mineral hints on the long finish. Overall the impression is one of great freshness and purity, unforced and not over-extracted, showing perfect balance. Very good.

Red berry liqueur, lavender and incense scents, along with hints of allspice and smoky minerals. Silky and seamless in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, cherry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that deepen steadily with air. Smoothly balances richness and finesse and finishes with bright, mineral-driven persistence, sneaky tannins and strong persistence. -- Josh Raynolds
