Critical Acclaim

RP93+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2013

"Showing more fruit and depth, yet still a more reserved version of this cuvee, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige is a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre that will spend 18 months in mostly older foudre, yet with 30% in barrels. Medium to full-bodied, pure and lively, with clean, classical aromas and flavors, solid concentration and fine tannin, it will have 12–15 years of longevity. Drink 2015–2027." (93–95 pts.)

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Oct 2014

"Another step up in quality (but not by much, and it’s a step up in price as well), the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is one of the top efforts in this outstanding vintage. Mostly Grenache, with 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre and other permitted varieties, it offers classic black raspberry, cassis, licorice and smoked-meat-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, concentrated and with a stacked mid-palate and sweet tannin, it builds on the palate and will have 15+ years of overall longevity." (94 pts.)

SP93 Wine Spectator Oct 15, 2014

"Muscular grip holds the edges, while the core of plum, black currant and steeped blackberry fruit waits in reserve, with black tea, pastis and licorice root notes on the finish. Shows solid range and depth. Best from 2015 through 2023. 196 cases imported." (93 pts.)

ST91+ Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 2014

"Inky purple. Sexy, intensely perfumed cherry and dark berries on the nose. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering deep blackberry and cherry-cola flavors enlivened by bright acidity and a smoky mineral nuance. Smoothly blends richness and vivacity and finishes with excellent clarity and persistence — and just a hint of tannins." (91–93 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
