Domaine Saint Préfert Réserve Auguste Favier Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2004

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Ruby-red. Flamboyantly aromatic nose combines vivacious raspberry and strawberry preserves with notes of five-spice powder and cinnamon. Lush and sweet but focused and vibrant, with pure red fruit flavors and exotic spice notes on the back. Finishes with fully absorbed tannins and excellent length.

Dark purple. Stunning bouquet of dark cherry, cassis, anise and garrigue, picking up fresh flowers and minerals with air. Chewy tannins frame lush dark fruit and licorice flavors, with cracked pepper and espresso notes emerging on the close. Pretty serious stuff, and not for early drinking.

Dense purple-colored, the grapy, young and unevolved but promising 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier has a stunning nose of creme de cassis and raspberry liqueur intermixed with ground pepper, roasted Provencal herbs in addition to spice box and graphite. Full-bodied with terrific fruit intensity, a multi-dimensional mouthfeel that stains the palate, and plenty of acidity and tannin, this is built for the long haul. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve Auguste Favier offers up a dense, peppery bouquet of incense, black currants, and herbs. Full-bodied and rich with good acidity as well as noticeable tannin, it should be drinkable between 2012-2020+.

Glass-staining ruby. Strikingly complex, scents of blackcurrant, graphite, incense and potpourri. Cherry-cola and dark berry compote flavors saturate the palate, picking up exotic notes of lavender and rose with air. The bright, gently sweet finish is dominated by zesty minerals. Offers impressive balance and clarity.

A dark and densely packed red, with lots of fig, black currant and bittersweet cocoa notes leading the way for blazing minerality and a super-racy, graphite-loaded finish. Long, lush and pure, with great grip. Best from 2008 through 2027.

The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier (81.2% Grenache, 15% very old vine Cinsault, and the rest Syrah, half of it aged in cement tanks and blended with the other half aged in three-year-old, 600-liter demi-muids) is another exhilarating wine. Blue/purple to the rim, with notes of camphor, incense, blueberries, licorice, spring flowers, and copious fruits of assorted red and black colors, the wine is broad, full-bodied, with superb purity, good freshness, and stunning length and texture. This gorgeous wine should age nicely for up to two decades.
