Saint Prefert, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2015

"Hold onto your hats with these latest releases from proprietress Isabel Ferrando, as they’re easily some of the most badass 2015s I was able to taste. If fact, they resemble a hypothetical mix of the 2007 and 2010, and in addition, while this estate is mostly known for their reds, don’t miss the whites, as over the past 4-5 years they’ve risen to the top of the heap in the appellation."

Saint Prefert dates back to the 1920s, when the Châteauneuf du Pape region was just beginning to recover from Phylloxera. In addition to the pest that destroyed many of France's great vineyards, there was also widespread adulteration and fraud whereby dishonest wine dealers bought plonk and then slapped a Châteauneuf label on the bottle. In 1920, Fernand Serre bought this property and became one of the first producers to make wine exclusively from his own estate fruit, thereby protecting the consumer and rebuilding the integrity of the region. Current owner Isabel Ferrando purchased the domaine from the Serre family in 2002 and now she oversees the old vines, predominantly Grenache, some of which are over 100 years old. In order to make the best examples of southern Rhone wines, Isabel crafts them without taking short cuts: she practices organic farming, crop-thinning for low yields, aging in demi-muids and small oak barrels, and bottling without filtration.

Isabel Ferrando's 2015s are some of the most impressive barrel samples I’ve tasted from her, and they’re more reminiscent of her 2007s (maybe with a touch of the 2010s) than her more recent vintages, which leaned heavily towards the fresher, more elegant end of the spectrum."
