Impressive assessment of the 2016 vintage Chateauneuf du Pape, placing the vintage in the company of the very finest vintages of CDP in the last 40 years recalling 1978, 1990, 2007, and 2010. It is no surprise that collectors have been buying 2016 aggressively upon release, as you did with 2010. This is a vintage that can age but will reward early on as well. Irresistible. Global demand is evident, and stressing the market already. Now is the time to secure your allocations.

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.

The 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prestige checks in as 75% Grenache and the balance mostly Syrah and smaller parts of other permitted varieties. Crème de cassis, olive tapenade, smoked herbs, and licorice notes all emerge from this remarkably pure, seamless, gorgeously refined and elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It shows slightly more Syrah character, has a multi-dimensional texture, and a layered, elegant style that just begs to be drunk. It can be drunk today or cellared for 15 years or more.
