The 2015 ChÃ¢teauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the balance a mix of permitted varieties. Like the other cuvÃ©es, itâs completely destemmed and aged in a mix of larger foudre, demi-muids and tronconique tanks. Voluptuous, full-bodied, gorgeously polished and pure, with ultra-fine tannin, it has beautiful Grenache fruit, lots of pepper and underbrush nuances, a great mid-palate and a big finish. More nuanced and elegant than outright powerful, it's going to evolve gracefully on its balance and purity.
As with the other cuvÃ©es from Roger Sabon, the philosophy behind the CuvÃ©e Prestige is to harvest the Grenache and Syrah early to preserve their natural acidity since the age of these vines â the oldest topping a century in age â 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, VaccarÃ¨se, Muscardin and Terret Noir.
