As with the other cuv es from Roger Sabon, the philosophy behind the Cuv e Prestige is to harvest the Grenache and Syrah early to preserve their natural acidity since the age of these vines – the oldest topping a century in age – will provide plenty of richness and concentration. As a result this wine walks the line between fresh red fruit, and dense black fruit flavors with additional complexity coming from a blend that also includes Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccar se, Muscardin and Terret Noir. Slightly more straight, focused, and elegant, the 2019 Ch teauneuf Du Pape Prestige is a brilliant 2019 in every way. Pure blackberries, black cherries, graphite, crushed stone, and peppery herb notes define the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with remarkable purity and a blockbuster of a finish. This is one classy, seamless, elegant Ch teauneuf du Pape that will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and have 25 years of overall longevity. A very deep and brooding style but with great freshness underneath. Deep tannic weave, with remarkable textural wealth. Just leaning slightly to the overripe in terms of fruit, but ends dry and savoury. A punchy, intense, muscular style. Grown on mixed soils, mostly galets roul s and sand, in the lieux-dits of Les Brusqui res and Cabri res. Fermented half in stainless steel, half in concrete tanks, then aged in large barrels of different shapes and sizes. Sleek, dark and winey, with nice flow and cut to the raspberry and blackberry puree flavors, infused with dark tea and carried by a graphite edge. Lingering anise and fruitcake notes sparkle through the finish. Beautifully done. Grenache, Syrah, Mourv dre, Counoise and Vaccar se. Drink now through 2036
