DOMAINE SAINT PRÉFERT Châteauneuf-du-Pape 'Collection Charles Giraud' 2010

2012 TOP 50 WINES - Rank #1
The 2010 Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud is complex and layered offering a heavy dosage of crushed black cherries and dark berries which are followed up by charcoal, licorice, lavender, gorgeous fresh minerals, bittersweet chocolate and a dash of blackberry liqueur. The beautiful soft and silky tannins caress your palate before picking up tons of momentum on the finish where it turns chewy and gets a blast of freshness from the underlying minerality and acidly. Remarkable for its balance, depth and focus. Just a fascinating wine which evolves with each sip and will continue to do so for years to come, entering its prime in about 15 years from now, and lasting well beyond that.
