Saint Prefert

Domaine Saint Prefert is a truly modern winery in a deeply traditional region. Approaching the building itself, one is immediately struck by the sheer avante-garde nature of the architecture. However the domaine itself is in no way a recent player on the stage in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. One of the first producers in the 1930s to make the leap out of the local market and into fine wine consciousness around the world.


Fast-froward to the present, under the guiding hand of Isabel Ferrando, Saint Prefert is one of the regions fastest rising stars and annually produces some very fine and long-lived wines indeed. Structured and elegant with many years ahead of it, the 2012 vintage was a great success at Saint Prefert, outperforming many of its more illustrious neighbours. This is a wine with easily another 10-15 years ahead of it and will reward careful cellaring.

Saint Prefert Chateauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (99)

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is a 60-40 blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, fermented with all the stems. There's a hint of cocoa, but raspberries and strawberries are the dominant fruit flavors in this lively, zesty wine. Trace notes of mint, lavender and tea leaf add complexity. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, it's intensely concentrated and rich yet not overly heavy or overripe (it weighs in at 15.5% alcohol), with a lingering, elegant finish. It's a tour de force that should age for two decades or more, and it will be interesting to see how it compares to the perfect 2010 after it's had a few years in bottle.

Saint Prefert Chateauneuf-du-Pape Collection Charles Giraud 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (100)

Even better (as well as a perfect wine), the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Collection Charles Giraud checks in as a nominal blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre that was brought up in demi-muids. It reveals a deep purple color as well as heavenly notes of blackberry and currant fruits intermixed with loads of cured meats, spice box, Asian spices, and a distinct loamy soil and minerality. Always more structured and powerful than the Reserve Auguste Favier release (no doubt due to the Mourvèdre component), it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, building yet polished tannins, flawless balance, and a great, great finish. Pure perfection in a glass, it’s as good as wine gets. Give bottles 2-4 years and enjoy over the following two decades. Hats off to winemaker Isabelle Ferrando for yet another thrilling wine!

Saint Prefert Chateauneuf-du-Pape Reserve Auguste Favier 2017 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (99)

Just about perfection in a glass, the 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier reveals a deep purple color as well as extraordinary notes of blackcurrants, blackberries, smoked meats, incense, and dried flowers. Always based on Grenache yet with 10-15% Cinsault, this full-bodied, deep, opulent Châteauneuf Du Pape tastes like the essence of Provence, is incredibly complex, has sweet tannins, and despite all its richness and depth, stays pure, fresh, and light on its feet. It’s one of the finest vintages of this cuvée to date!
