Hommage à Jacques Perrin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1996

Rated very high and cellared perfectly - excellent smooth tannins and lovely delicate fruit but not as substantial as expected. Drink now — 4 months ago

Esprit de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend 2008

At 11 years of age this wine is really impressive. 38% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 26% Syrah and 6% Cunoise it has wonderful complexity. Still a lot of red fruit - strawberry, red currant especially, a welcome tertiary note of leather and good acidity with very mellow silky tannins. Lovely bottle — 3 months ago

Domaine Saint Préfert

Réserve Auguste Favier Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2010

I get it, I get it. This is the first Chateauneuf that’s really wowed me. Having been left a little underwhelmed by the 2004 Beaucastel I had over Christmas (though I rated this highly at the time), I looked to Isabel Ferrando and her Domaine de Saint Préfert for some confirmation - in my untrained mind - as to the appeal of CNDP. And boy, did this bottle deliver.

This wine boasts a very powerful aroma, which drove me to profanity when I first smelled it; a mix of blueberry, liquorice, bergamot and coffee much of which continues on the palate. It’s incredibly ripe, full, seductive and has everything in check: fresh acidity, gentle tannin, and a long, velvety finish (think Turkish delight). My initial thought on composition was that this must be a Grenache-dominant blend given the ripe, fruit forward profile and high alcohol (15%), so as an amateur I was pleased to find out that, indeed, it’s 85% Grenache with 15% Cinsault.

A great wine that will age gracefully. I wish I had more.
