95 points ""(91-94) out of 100...The brilliant 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige boasts a deep ruby/purple color along with a primordial, backward personality revealing roasted meat scents intermixed with cassis, kirsch liqueur, herbes de Provence, and loamy soil. A layered, multi-textured, powerful Chateauneuf possessing finesse, balance, 15% alcohol, and a 60-second finish, it hints at serious tannin lurking beneath all the fruit, glycerin, and power, so give it 2-3 years of bottle age and drink it over the next 15-16. " - RMP "95 out of 100... Dense raspberry, plum, licorice, tar and bacon notes are supported by thick, muscular tannins in this concentrated, showy red. A bit of a brute now (though floral and mineral hints chime in too) so cellar. If you do, you'll have a classic example of the vintage. Best from 2007 through 2025. 1,250 cases made." - W.S. "
