Parker review

A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Cinsault, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve Auguste Favier boasts enchanting floral aromas, intoxicating raspberry and cherry fruit and enthralling hints of Swiss cocoa. Full-bodied, rich and velvety, it nevertheless comes across as fresh and nearly weightless. The use of stems (the wine is all whole bunches) and an elevated proportion of Cinsault has certainly contributed to this wine's soaring aromas and sense of freshness. It's a fascinating wine ! 97/100

Press

Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 94-96/100 ! Bright ruby. Heady, spice-accented raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by sexy lavender and spice qualities, and white pepper and garrigue notes emerge with air. Seamless, deep and sweet in the mouth, offering intense, mineral-laced red and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille flavors and a hint of allspice. Closes juicy and impressively long, displaying sneaky tannins and lingering florality.

JebbDunnuck.com: 97/100 !  Incredibly perfumed and complex, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Reserve Auguste Favier has put on weight since I tasted it as a barrel sample and offers full-bodied notes of currants, Asian spices, dried flowers, and lavender. It's powerful, concentrated and layered, yet always light on its feet and beautifully balanced, with a seamless, elegant texture as well as the purity of fruit that's the hallmark of this great vintage. It's a rock star wine from this terrific estate that's going to drink beautifully for two decades.
