2007 Roger Sabon "Prestige" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1050249 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The brilliant 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige (60% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, and the balance almost every other authorized red grape of the appellation) is produced from parcels that average 90 years of age or older. It reveals the essence of Provence in its dense plum/purple color and powerful aromatics of sweet creme de cassis, black cherries, licorice, lavender, pepper, and incense. The wine possesses terrific depth, a blockbuster, opulent, multilayered texture, and a finish that lasts nearly 50 seconds. This sensational Chateauneuf du Pape should drink well for 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2009)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Even richer and with more depth than the Réservée, the 2007 Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Prestige is a beauty and offers up perfumed aromatics of blackberries, kirsch, incense and spice. With air, subtle graphite and earthy aromas show up. In the mouth, the wine is full bodied with and elegant, polished character, impressive balance and fine grained tannins that kick in on the long finish. This is a stunning wine that should drink beautifully over the next 15+ years. Inner quote mark (8/2009)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Highly perfumed scents of dark berries and kirsch, with sexy incense and floral qualities gaining strength with air. Broad, palate-coating blackcurrant and cherry flavors are complemented by smoke and floral pastilles, with chewy tannins adding grip. The finish leaves sweet notes of candied lavender and rose behind and shows a subtle smokiness. This is more exotic than the Reserve and built for the longer haul. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very silky, with nice deceptive depth to the perfumy crushed plum, toast, pepper and kirsch notes. A hint of shiso leaf extends the mineral- and red fruit-filled finish. (JM) Inner quote mark (11/2009)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Dark healthy crimson. Heady nose with very rich, sweet fruit, but no excess of alcohol at all. The tannins are very fine too. This is drawing room Châteauneuf! Edge of Earl Grey tea. Great finesse. 18/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (12/2008)
