There are two Châteauneufs made in 2012, the classique and the Auguste Favier, with no Collection Charles Giraud. The 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape is another beautiful vintage here, and it offers classic kirsch, blackberry, roasted meats and toasted spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, ripe, layered and seamless style. The tannin here builds on the palate, but is fine and polished. Give this another year or two and enjoy bottles through 2027.||Easily one of my favorite estates, Saint Prefert is run by the talented Isabel Ferrando, who studied winemaking in Gigondas before releasing her first vintage from Châteauneuf du Pape in 2003. Since then, it’s been one superb release after another. For additional information on the estate, readers should check out the recent retrospective from this estate in Issue 214. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
