DOMAINE SAINT PRÉFERT Châteauneuf-Du-Pape 'Réserve Auguste Favier' 2013

The 'Réserve Auguste Favier' is a lovely showing in 2013, with more depth and expressive ripe fruits than the traditional Châteauneuf-Du-Pape from the Domaine. As this slowly begins to open it delivers gorgeous aromas of dark plum and black cherries woven together with spices, white pepper, wild herbs, pretty notes of fresh lavender and hints of dark cocoa powder. It possesses a round, velvety texture, while remaing balanced and focused all the way through the long finish, where spices and fresh dark fruits leave a lasting impression. Overall, this is an excellent wine from Isabel Ferrando, but this will need a few additional years bottle age. (Best 2017-2026) - September, 2015 (JD)
