"Richer and more concentrated, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier offers an incredibly layered, elegant, yet also powerful profile. Plenty of dark fruits, bouquet garni, pepper, and some meaty notes all define the bouquet, and it’s as seamless and silky as they come on the palate. It’s going to benefit from just short-term cellaring and will keep for two decades."
