Domaine de Saint Prefert Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008

External Review by We Speak Wine:

No Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud was made in 2008 because of the challenges of the vintage, but a fine 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape was produced from a blend of 80% Grenache and the rest equal parts Mourvedre, Syrah, and Cinsault. Half of this cuvee is aged in cement tanks and half in 600-liter demi-muids. A strong effort for the vintage, it exhibits a deep ruby/purple hue as well as plenty of black cherry, roasted herb, licorice, and spice box notes. Medium-bodied and richly fruity, it should be a real charmer in its youth, and drink well for 7-8 years. Deep red. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of dried flowers and herbs. Peppery, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and show a Burgundian personality. Silky tannins add grip to the nicely persistent, juicy finish. This is in bottle and ready to drink.

Deep red. Fresh red berries and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of dried flowers and herbs. Peppery, sharply focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and show a Burgundian personality. Silky tannins add grip to the nicely persistent, juicy finish. This is in bottle and ready to drink. The light ruby-colored 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape is a classic, quintessential wine of Provence. Notes of lavender, roasted herbs and sweet kirsch are offered in a soft, seductive, round, medium-bodied, sexy style displaying lots of fruit. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years. ** Only 11 in Stock **

The 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier is composed of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault. Among the deepest, richest, and fullest of the 2008s I tasted, it offers ripe scents of berry fruit, licorice, herbs, and pepper followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with beautiful purity, depth, and richness. Enjoy it over the next decade. Ruby-red. Exotic perfume of red berry preserves, garrigue, minerals and Asian spices. Juicy red fruit flavors are framed by silky tannins and pick up a note of candied flowers with aeration. Very suave, supple wine with resonating notes of red fruit and flowers on the aftertaste. ** Only 5 in Stock **
