Named for winemaker/owner Isabel Ferrando's maternal grandfather, 'Auguste Favier' Châteauneuf-du-Pape is an old vine blend including vines up to 100 years old which produce a wine of extraordinary concentration and complexity. The 2011 vintage is a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault. Robert Parker reports: 'This superb estate has become one of my favorites in Châteauneuf-du-Pape…if you haven't discovered Saint-Préfert and the brilliant winemaker Isabel Ferrando, it's about time!'

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier (85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault) is deeper and richer on the palate than I remember. Giving up loads of blackberry, licorice, smoked herbs and toasted spice, it possesses medium to full-bodied richness, beautiful mid-palate density and a beautiful core of sweet fruit. Already drinking beautifully, it will have a solid 10-12 years of ultimate longevity.

International Wine CellarAromas of raspberry, incense, candied lavender and allspice, with a sexy floral note gaining strength with aeration. Sappy and concentrated, with vibrant red berry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of lavender pastille. Impressively lively and precise, finishing with great energy and silky tannins. This wine shows the best qualities of the 2011 vintage.
