A blend of 80% Grenache 15% Cinsault and 5% Mourvèdre that's aged in a combination of concrete and 3-year-old barrels it displays brilliantly perfumed complex aromas of kirsch liqueur garrigue licorice rolled stone and meat juice on the nose. This leads to a full-bodied hedonistically styled Châteauneuf-du-Pape that possesses a seamless elegant texture loads of sweet fruit and ultra-fine tannin on the finish. This doesn't have the depth or richness of the '07 but is stunning nonetheless. It should drink beautifully for 10-12 years.

Showing additional tannic grip on the finish, it will continue to evolve nicely through 2024. - Jeb Dunnuck

Intensely perfumed scents of red berry preserves potpourri Asian spices and white pepper. Potent raspberry and cherry flavors are given cut by tangy acidity and pick up a deeper cherry pit quality with aeration. Impressively pure accented by intense finishing spiciness and persistent floral character. This is already very alluring.

The long tar-stained finish shows well-integrated grip while the fruit echoes. Best from 2012 through 2023. 1583 cases made.

At ten years of age, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier is sitting pretty.

Yes, there are some super ripe, chocolaty notes, but there's also plenty of fruit remaining in this lush, full-bodied wine, which finishes on savory notes of black olives and licorice. - Joe Czerwinski
