The Barrage of '07 CDP Continues

Domaine St. Prefert, Auguste Favier ‘07

This took quite a bit more time and coaxing to come out of its shell than the entry level cuvee, but patience paid off, bringing out that alluring floral note I always seem to get from this cuvee (the 15% old vine Cinsault?). The entry is sleek, weaving in mouth-filling layers of violet, creamy raspberry and fruitcake into the fray. The texture couldn’t be any suppler if it tried, complete w/ the length and purity of fruit that calls to mind Usseglio’s Mon Aieul cuvee. This is a few years away from prime drinking, but I imagine it has a couple of decades of life ahead of it, 95 points.
