Saint Prefert, Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2016

Owner Isabel Ferrando purchased this brilliant 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.​

​"The 2016s are on another level. The wines are beautifully concentrated and structured – on par with 2010 – yet have a more open, sexy, voluptuous style due to the larger yields. The tannin quality is beautiful, the wines have notable freshness and purity, their alcohol is integrated, and quality is incredibly high across all the regions. In fact, the biggest surprise was the consistency of the vintage, which is even more homogenous than 2015. This is truly an extraordinary vintage."
— Jeb Dunnuck

2016 is an exceptional, classic vintage in the Southern Rhône giving the region a one-two punch following the excellent reviews of the 2015's. There are also two 2017 releases from Saint Préfert in this latest shipment - the top value Côtes du Rhône 'Clos Beatus Ille' and a tiny allocation of Saint-Prefert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2017.
