    Winemaker's Notes:

    One of the most passionately run estates in all of Chateauneuf du Pape is Domaine Saint-Prefert, which is located in the southern sector of the appellation. Auguste Favier Reserve is the estate's lovely blend of Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very rich and caressing, with lovely plum sauce, melted licorice and cassis aromas and flavors all woven together and backed by ample but velvety tannins. The long, tar-stained finish shows well-integrated grip, while the fruit echoes. Best from 2012 through 2023.

    Bright ruby. Sexy, heady aromas of candied red fruits, potpourri, Asian spices and licorice. Stains the palate with vibrant black raspberry and cherry flavors enlivened by blood orange and white pepper nuances. A pure and incisive 2009 with excellent finishing power and cut.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier displays much more kirsch, smoke, licorice and lavender. The 100% stem inclusion has also given the wine a sort of bouquet garni notion in the aromas and flavors. It is full-bodied, much more evolved and forward than the 2010, and a good candidate for drinking over the next 10-15+ years.
