  • A blend of old Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah vines, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape has an intensely coloured appearance. Its aromas of black berries, liquorice and leather are evidence of a particularly warm and sunny terroir. This wine was made for keeping, and was produced using sustainable cultivation methods. The grapes are sorted as they arrive at the cellar. They are vinified by parcel, using stemmed grapes. The fermentation process is allowed to start naturally. The vatting process is gentle, without excessive extraction. The wine is matured in vats and barrels. This powerful wine will benefit from a few years' cellaring, and from being decanted into a carafe at least 2 hours before serving.

    Isabel Ferrando, a former banker, bought Domaine Saint-Préfert in 2003. The vineyard was planted in 1930 on gravel and pebble soils on the southern side of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Isabel has been producing three cuvées of Châteauneuf-du-Pape red since the beginning of her winemaking career. Her wines reflect the appellation’s warm, well-drained and sunny terroir to perfection, and are therefore imbued with candied, chocolatey and empyreumatic notes. Thanks to this determined woman’s endeavours, this sustainably-run property is one of the top names in the appellation.

Tasting notes - Extract
"Bright purplish crimson. Lively nose and a certain saltiness on the palate. Good, refreshing fruit with some depth and energy. Excellent balance even if it doesn’t have all that much tannin. 40% Mourvèdre in this cuvée." Jancis Robinson
