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.
