Sourced from the lieux-dits of Les Brusquières and Cabrières, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% other varieties. Tasted blind, it's a big, full-bodied, lush wine. Powered by bold cherry and stone fruit, it shows hints of pepper and clove complexity, plus vibrant citrus zest notes on the long, electric finish. Wow.

Slightly more elegant and refined than the reserve, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige (70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvèdre, aged in foudre, demi-muids and tronconique tanks) has similar black raspberry, spice and garrigue aromatics, full-bodied richness, killer purity of fruit, ripe tannin, and a great finish. It's another great wine from this estate.
