Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier Domaine de Saint-Prefert 92 Rr 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Stylish, with lovely floral and shiso leaf notes backed by mulled black cherry, Damson plum and macerated currant fruit. Very silky through the perfumy finish, without the vintage’s taut edge. Really fleshes out nicely in the glass. Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault...92" WS 06/10 "A superb effort that clocks in at 15.5% alcohol, the 2008 Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Auguste Favier is mostly Grenache and delivers ripe, perfumed aromatics of spiced cherries, meat juices, licorice, garrigue, and bakers chocolate. As with the traditional cuvee, this fleshes out beautifully with air, showing best on the second and third day. Medium bodied with sweet, ripe fruit, fresh acidity and loads of texture, this is has solid concentration and should drink beautifully over the next 8 to 10 years. Tasted twice...92" Rhone Report 08/10
