Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud Domaine de Saint-Prefert 2011 (750ML)
94 WA
"The most substantial of the trio, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is up with the creme de la creme of the vintage. Comprised of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvedre and aged in a combination of tank and demi-muid, it boasts smoking aromatics of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, licorice, roasted meats and crushed stone to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich, textured, yet elegant profile on the palate. It’s beautifully done and should have 12-15 years of longevity. Drink now-2026...94" WA 10/13 "Located in the southern portion of Chateauneuf du Pape, and comprised of 55 acres of mostly sandy soils, Domaine Saint Prefert burst onto the scene in 2003 and has since produced outstanding wine after outstanding wine. Run by Isabel Ferrando, the style here is up-front and perfumed, with silky, elegant textures that carry serious amounts of richness without ever seeming heavy. While both 2011 and 2012 are strong here, these showed slightly more straightforward, mid-weight profiles than previous vintages. In addition to these Saint-Prefert releases, she also produces a 100% Grenache cuvee under her own Isabel Ferrando label, Colombis. In addition to the Chateauneufs, don’t miss the Cotes du Rhones from this estate as they give insight into the style and quality here."
