2019 Domaine Saint Préfert Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes Clairette, France, Rhone, Wine Review
My first time trying this (available only in Magnum), it was obviously young and needed some time to open. The is made from 100% old vine (80 to 100 years old) Clairette grapes. Very concentrated and unique. The nose shows almonds, limes, some peach and wax. Full bodied. It seemed a bit blowsy. On the palate, almonds and limes come thru along with some wax. It is very concentrated yet also has some volume to it. With every sip my palate adjusted and I enjoyed it more and more.
