2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Colombis, Domaine Saint Préfert

Sold Out

Here is a 100% old vine Grenache, some plots of which are located in the central sandier soils, close to Rayas. Aged for 18 months in third-fill hogsheads the 2012 is elegant, ethereal and complex, running garlanded gamuts of fruit and flowers. Simon Field MW, Rhône Wine Buyer The effervescent Isabel Ferando is relatively traditional in her winemaking, in terms of de-stemming, cuvaison and such things. Her commercial acumen, however, leads her down the path of multiple cuvées, and a very attractive path it is in 2012, with each wine intriguingly different.
