Tasting Notes


ABV:
13 %

Notes

A blend, 60% Grenache 40% Mourvèdre that shows the great qualities of Mourvèdre when at its best. Stunning velvety blackberry and black cherry fruit, dense but with a textural finesse, notes of saddle leather and spice, floral notes complete the long lively finish. Aged in used oak hogsheads for 18 months.

Notes
Vivid glistening violet. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-tinged red and blue fruit preserves, incense and exotic spices, and a sexy floral nuance gains power as the wine opens up. Fleshy, seamless, appealingly sweet and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed, finely detailed raspberry, boysenberry, lavender and candied licorice flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Suggestions of five-spice powder and smoked meat appear on the penetrating finish, which shows outstanding clarity, finely wrought tannins and endless red fruit and floral notes.

Domaine Saint Prefert

Domaine Saint Prefert

Situated in the same Quartier des Serres as it was back in 1930s, when it was among the first Châteauneuf du Pape estates to sell its wines in bottle, St Prefert is an historic state with some great terroir, old vines and a large proportion of Mourvedre, with the potential to produce very special wines that have their own distinctive personality. This is exactly what owner Isabel Ferrando has succeeded in achieving since taking over the estate in 2003. Traditionally made, using whole bunch fermentation, with concrete tanks and used oak hogsheads for ageing, these are wines of personality and life that have a great deal to say about where they are from. A stellar estate.
