"Bright ruby. Red berries, cherry and rhubarb on the expressive, spice-accented nose. Spicy and tightly wound on entry, then fleshier and deeper in the middle, offering sappy but seamless red fruit and bitter cherry flavors. Gains power with air and finishes with very good breadth, energy and lingering spiciness. This elegant Chateauneuf will age well on its balance."
International Wine Cellar
"The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Prestige, which comes from 80- to 100-year-old vines (in contrast to the 45-year-old vines of the Tradition), is essentially an identical blend, and again aged primarily in tank. This is a slightly darker color, with massive amounts of black cherry and strawberry jam notes, and hints of Provencal herbs as well as loamy, sandy soil. A savory, broad, full-bodied wine without a hard edge to be found...
The Wine Advocate
"This takes the very light, perfumy approach, with lots of tea and sandalwood leading the way for floral, cherry and shiso leaf notes. The very stylish, high-toned finish has persistent bitter cherry and iron hints. This goes against the prevailing style in Châteauneuf, like an old Rayas. Drink now through 2025."
The Royer family has a century old past as winegrowers in Chateauneuf du Pape.
The father of Jean-Marie Royer died when Jean-Marie was a child and for some years all the their land was let out to other Vignerons.

As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome.
