Tasting Notes


ABV:
14.5 %

Notes

A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault from fifty year old vines from which Isabel Ferrando makes less than 2000 cases a year. The vines are in the estate’s original and historic Quartier des Serres sector. Half of the wine is aged in concrete tank and half in large used oak hogsheads, for 18 months. Intense flavours, a wine of structure verve and energy. Bags of personality, hedgerow fruits, stone, herbs and garrigue, brambly mineral-licked fruit with touches of plum liqueur.

Notes
Full ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented blackberry and boysenberry aromas are complemented by hints of incense, licorice and pungent flowers. Seamless and impressively concentrated, offering alluringly sweet dark berry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors sharpened by a jolt of peppery spices. Rich yet energetic in style, finishing with excellent clarity and fine-grained tannins that sneak in late.

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.
