"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.

This estate has been at the top of its game for many years and any partisan of Rhone Valley wines (especially the southern Rhone) who has not yet tried a wine from Domaine Roger Sabon should make every effort to do so. They produce four separate Chateauneuf du Pape cuvees and have hit home runs in both 2009 and 2010, the finest back-to-back vintages I have ever tasted from this 42-acre estate run by the large Sabon family, in this case, Jean-Jacques, Julien, Gilbert and Denis. They own 15 parcels spread throughout the appellation, most of them concentrated in the western and eastern sectors north of the village. The brilliant 2009s are among the finest of the vintage." - Robert M. Parker. Jr.

"There's a slightly chunky edge to the charcoal, roasted fig, mulled plum and black currant notes in this dark. 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. " - James Molesworth
