2018 Domaine Saint Préfert Vieilles Vignes Clairette  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 96

Rich, lush, opulent, slightly oily in texture, the wine explodes with white peach, vanilla, lemon curd, tropical fruits and honeysuckle. This is quite long, intense and leaves a big impression. Only produced in magnum, this is probably going to be better and perhaps deserving of a higher score when it matures. 96 Points

2018 Domaine Saint Préfert Collection Charles Giraud  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 97

Deep and dark, which is hard to find this year, the fruit combines black cherries, plums, kirsch and black raspberries with a blast of spice. Rich, but not out of balance, the wine sits perfectly on the corner of full and balanced. Length, purity and elegance are the cornerstone here in the finish. I really like the depth of flavor, spice and expansiveness in the finish which comes from all the Mourvedre. 97 Points

2018 Domaine Saint Préfert Réserve Auguste Favier  (Châteauneuf-du-Pape) 95

The nose, with its blend of herbs, strong floral notes and sweet kirsch hit all the right notes. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, offering energy and lift to the elegant, silky, red berries and spice. This is going to be great with just a bit of age, though I cannot blame you if you can't wait to pop a cork. 95 Points
