Wine Advocate 91 points - There are two Chateauneufs made in 2012, the classique and the Auguste Favier, with no Collection Charles Giraud. The 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape is another beautiful vintage here, and it offers classic kirsch, blackberry, roasted meats and toasted spice to go with a medium to full-bodied, ripe, layered and seamless style. The tannin here builds on the palate, but is fine and polished. Give this another year or two and enjoy bottles through 2027. (Oct 2014)

Domaine de SAINT PREFERT was created nearly a century ago by a tremendous wine connoisseur, Fernand SERRE, who was a pharmacist in Avignon.He discovered one day that a district of Chateauneuf du Pape had the same name as him - Quartier des Serres. A true lover of great wines and a fine apothecary, he purchased nearly 80 hectares of land in this district on the southern slope of the village, with a secret longing to become a vinegrower-winemaker. Fernand SERRE, who had already unlocked the secrets of plants, moved on to unlock those of grapes…He built a cellar and a house in the heart of the vines and quickly learnt vinification. Yeasts, fermentation and temperature control were all part of the learning process. Fernand passed all his skills and know-how down to his son Camille and daughter-in-law Suzanne.An excellent winemaker, Fernand SERRE was a trail blazer for the renown of this appellation. Saint Prefert was one of the first Chateauneuf du Pape estates to sell its wines in bottles in the 1930s and to conquer far-flung markets. With Isabel FERRANDO at the helm since 2003, SAINT PREFERT is today perpetuating the same know-how in love and care for vines and wine.
