Domaine Saint Prefert Châteauneuf du Pape Auguste Favier Réserve 2013
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine Saint Prefert|
Juicy and still youthfully taut, with the core of raspberry pâte de fruit and plum coulis flavors waiting to unwind. Lovely anise, black tea and mineral notes fill in on the finish, which is plush and energetic. A delicious wine in need of moderate cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2025. 915 cases made.
Checking in as a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and a splash of Mourvèdre, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier is lively and fresh, with medium plus-bodied richness, fine tannin and ample aromas of blackberry, peppery herbs, lavender and violets.
