Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier Domaine de Saint-Prefert Premier 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"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...94" WS 9/11 "The 2009 Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Auguste Favier is a gorgeous effort in the vintage. A blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, and 5% Mourvèdre that‟s aged in a combination of concrete and 3-year-old barrels, it displays brilliantly perfumed, complex aromas of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, licorice, rolled stone, and meat juice on the nose. This leads to a full-bodied, hedonistically styled Châteauneuf-du-Pape that possesses a seamless, elegant texture, loads of sweet fruit, and ultra-fine tannin on the finish...94" RR 09/11 "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...93" WA 10/11
