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. This doesn’t have the depth or richness of the ’07, but is stunning nonetheless.
Bright ruby. Sexy, heady aromas of candied red fruits, potpourri, Asian spices and licorice. Stains the palate with vibrant black raspberry and cherry flavors enlivened by blood orange and white pepper nuances. A pure and incisive 2009 with excellent finishing power and cut. (JR)
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. (JM)
At ten years of age, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Réserve Auguste Favier is sitting pretty. Yes, there are some super ripe, chocolaty notes, but there's also plenty of fruit remaining in this lush, full-bodied wine, which finishes on savory notes of black olives and licorice. (JC)
