Description
 
This estate draws on its resources of old vines to produce wines which show great intensity and real class. Wine making here is very traditional with aging in large oak foudres and no filtration before bottling. These are wines very much in the classic Chateauneuf style.

For some inexplicable reason, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige failed to live up to my lofty expectations from last year. Perhaps it is just in a closed state after bottling? It's a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre and 5% other permitted varieties that seems more subdued than the Reserve, although it does have some of the same floral and black cherry notes. It's full-bodied, creamy and rich, with a long, velvety finish that carries hints of chocolate and licorice. Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes. Wine Advocate 94+
