Domaine Isabel Ferrando, Châteauneuf du Pape, Colombis

2020

Tasting Notes


ABV:
14.5 %

Notes

A little less dark and a touch more red-fruited than the Terroirs de Saint Prefert, this is more centred on finesse. The silky fruit flavours are seasoned with a touch of fine-grained salt. This is lively but glides elegantly across the palate and develops notes of kirsch, raspberry and crème de mure, before tapering into a precise, elegant and long, mineral finish. 100% Grenache from 80 year old vines from the Colombis, Le Cristia, Le Rayas and Les Roues vineyards – harbouring three differing soil types: sandy limestone (Colombis); sandstone and sand (Rayas, Cristia) and clay / galet roulets (Les Roues) each with cool expositions. Whole bunch fermented and aged in 2 year old foudres and amphoras. Only 6000 bottles were produced.

Notes
The single varietal Grenache 2020 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Colombis is a towering effort. Having the edge over the 2021 and coming in at 15.5% alcohol, it presents pristine aromas of ripe red fruits that have a jewel-like quality to them, dried lavender, cardamom, licorice, pencil shavings and crushed rocks. Full-bodied and layered, it is framed by ever-so-velvety tannins and balanced by high levels of fresh acidity. There is fantastic tension on the complex finish that goes on for well over a minute. 6,000 bottles produced.
