93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige offers a bigger, sweeter, and richer core of fruit to go with medium to full-bodied depth and concentration on the palate. Peppery, Provençal and garrigue-laced, this beautiful 2013 has terrific tannin quality and a great finish. It can be enjoyed anytime over the coming decade. Domaine Roger Sabon, led by Diedier Negron, can seemingly do no wrong and continues to release some of the top wines in just about every vintage. They’ve excelled in both 2013 and 2014."

"Rather Burgundian in feel, with alluring cherry sauce, plum compote and raspberry coulis flavors, backed by a twinge of licorice. A violet hint lingers at the end, giving this additional grace and length. Drink now through 2025."
92 points Vinous
"Full ruby. Smoke-accented blackberry and cherry preserve aromas show excellent clarity and pick up hints of licorice and candied flowers with air. Lush and open-knit, offering gently sweet red and dark berry and spicecake flavors and a hint of smoky minerality. The smoky quality comes back strong on the persistent, floral-accented finish, which is given shape by fine-grained tannins."
"Eucalypt and menthol, chocolate and red cherry with a long medicinal character on the finish. Long, distinctive. More engaging than their Réserve cuvée. 17/20 points. (RH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
“The style here is a brilliant combination of the best traditional techniques married to a handful of modern nuances.” ~ Robert Parker
As with the other cuvées from Roger Sabon, the philosophy behind the Cuvée Prestige is to harvest the Grenache and Syrah early to preserve their natural acidity since the age of these vines – the oldest topping a century in age – will provide plenty of richness and concentration. As a result this wine walks the line between fresh red fruit, and dense black fruit flavors with additional complexity coming from a blend that also includes Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Muscardin and Terret Noir.
