|Village||Châteauneuf du Pape|
Like in 2014, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige has a darker edge to its fruit and exhibits classic notes of wild strawberries, spring flowers, licorice and a hint of mint. Made from 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah that was raised mostly in barrel (all old I believe), it has medium-bodied richness, fine tannin and a great texture. It too will drink nicely through 2023.

Deep red. Darker in profile than the Tradition, displaying scents and flavors of black raspberry, cherry and candied rose. Supple and seamless on the palate, with a touch of smokiness building on the back half. A sexy floral pastille note lingers on the finish, which is framed by smooth, slow-building tannins.

Domaine Jean Royer
Jean-Marie Royer inherited his vines in 1985 and set about improving the grape varietal mix and the vinification from then. Since more than half of the domaine is in unclassified 'Vin de Table' or 'Côtes du Rhône', he has developed a marque 'Le Petit Roy' sold as 'Vin de Table' for everything that does not make it into the Châteauneuf cuvées. The Petit Roy has been a big hit in the shops.
His Châteauneufs are just gorgeous, and in the context of some of the Parkerised dottiness going on, offer refreshingly fantastic value for money. He has undoubtedly been much helped by his close friend the star oenologist Philippe Cambié, who he went to school with and also played rugby with for many years. Cambié is more famous for a full-on rather extracted style, but Jean-Marie has imposed his own, fresher, brighter style on all his wines, which are crunchy and well-defined.
