The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape from St Préfert is showing so beautifully right now. Packed full of red and black fruit, sweet liquorice and a new glossy milk chocolate character, it is in that lovely just resolved stage: still fresh and juicy, but with a glossy, easy flair and beautiful pixelated tannins, bright acidity and cool stony character. The aromas are complex and layered, with herbs and smoke intermingling with the sweet balsamic fruit. Medium-bodied and fresh, but with impeccable structure and depth, this is one to relish now or keep in the cellar for future enjoyment.
