Roger Sabon Cuvée Prestige Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010

$54.95

Once again the Sabons have hit a home run with their 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige. Opaque purple-hued with a full-bodied mouthfeel, massive concentration, abundant tannin and good acidity, it will not be as drinkable early on as the 2009 Prestige. The 2010 possesses some of the structural characteristics of the 2005, and thus requires 5-6 years of patience. It should keep for an atypically long time for a Chateauneuf du Pape - 25-30 years. It is a brilliant, majestic, massive Chateauneuf du Pape from the Sabons. Robert Parker

Perhaps not the most complex cdp but rich, solid dense fruit core and drinking pretty well.

Gotta say the 2010s are fabulous.

Dark bramble fruit on the nose. The palate was smoky then a smash mouth full of dark berries finishing with a hint of anise on the finish. Very nice indeed!

Really not ready yet, but after a few hours in a decanter it was much more approachable. Dark fruit, bramble. Delicious, but not as complex as I wanted it to be.
