Anyone who has followed the great wines of the Rhone valley for any length of time will easily attest, Isabel Ferrando is one of this generation's most important players. I first met her at her post in Gigondas, where I was a regular visitor to one of the village's great domaines, Raspail-Ay. Her desire to expand into neighboring Chateauneuf du Pape led her to an ancient estate, Domaine Saint Prefert. A domaine which was first established by Fernand Serre nearly a century earlier, in the district of Quartier des Serres at the southern edge of the village, Saint Prefert was one of the first estate bottlers in the 1930s. Isabel's selections are among the very finest of Chateauneuf du Pape.

Moving to the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Collection Charles Giraud, it checks in as 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre brought up in demi-muids. It’s a more structured wine than the Reserve Auguste Favier and boasts killer notes of ground pepper, graphite, spice box, and blackberries. With a huge core of sweet fruit, a layered, seamless texture, full body, and more concentration and depth than most in the vintage, it’s up with the top 2-3 wines out there in 2018.

The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Collection Charles Giraud is the usual blend of approximately 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre. It's dark and rich, with flavors of black cherries and plums joined by hints of tree bark and perhaps even a bit of mushroom. Full-bodied and velvety, it's powerful, concentrated and long on the finish, folding in subtle chocolate notes.
