Named for owner Isabel Ferrando's maternal grandfather, 'Auguste Favier' Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a blend of mostly Grenache with old vine Cinsault (about 70 years old vines). This 2009 offering is most likely the best bottling to date, and James Molesworth of Wine Spectator raved: 'The top two St.-Préfert reds (August Favier and Giraud) are among the most compelling wines I've tasted from the appellation since I began covering the region.' And Robert Parker reported: 'One of the up and coming superstar estates in Chateauneuf du Pape is that of Isabel Ferrando's Domaine Saint-Prefert.'

Wine Spectator Very rich and caressing, with lovely plum sauce, melted licorice and cassis aromas and flavors all woven together and backed by ample but velvety tannins. The long, tar-stained finish shows well-integrated grip, while the fruit echoes. Best from 2012 through 2023.-J.M. Score: 94.

Wine Advocate Complex aromatics of garrigue, lavender, kirsch, raspberry and earth soar from the surprisingly evolved 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier. Made from an interesting blend of 82% Grenache, 15% old vine Cinsault and 3% Syrah, half aged in cement tank and half in 600-liter, two- to three-year-old demi-muids, this wine reveals no hard edges in its medium to full-bodied texture. It cuts a broad, creamy swath across the palate, and should offer remarkable drinking when released in 2011. Score: 93. —Robert Parker,

International Wine Cellar 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. Score: 92.
