Tasting Notes:

94 points "Tipping the scales at 14.5-15% alcohol, the old vine, full-bodied 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige is a wine of impressive intensity and thickness. Aromas reminiscent of liqueur of roasted herbs intermixed with meaty, game-like smells, black cherries, ground pepper, beef blood, and garrigue are followed by a wine of noteworthy stature, complexity, and mouthfilling generosity. Serious tannin is largely obscured by the wealth of fruit and extract. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 12-15 years. " Best 2006-2021

95 points "95 points Medium-deep color. Attractive fruity, peppery nose. Rich and full-bodied on the palate with terrific grip and mouth feel. The cherry fruit is sweet and delicious. Spicy and complex, but falls a little short of wine #11. The bright cherry fruit continues into the long finish. Not everybody’s favorite but those who liked it really liked it!" Best 2005-2008

95 points "This is a rich yet silky, fruit-driven version, with a terrific core of black cherry, blackberry and cassis fruit covered with dark chocolate, tobacco and licorice notes. Stays supple even through the explosive finish, which delivers another blast of fruit. Drink now through 2016. 1,250 cases made. –JM "
