Ferrando Isabel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Colombis 2013 magnum - red wine

Tasted out of bottle and showing much better than last year (which is common with Isabel’s wines), the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Colombis was fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged 18 months in two-year-old tronconique barrels. Kirsch, ground pepper, black raspberry and ample Provençal herbs all flow beautifully to a medium to full-bodied, voluptuous and sexy profile on the palate. This is as hedonistic as it gets in 2013 and this one of the wines to seek out.

Jeb Dunnuck : Proprietress Isabel Ferrando continues to fashion some of the most profound wines on the planet, and her 2017s and 2018s are not going to change that trend. Looking at the wines, the estate is in the southern portion of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and covers roughly 55 acres, from which she releases five cuvées: two whites and three reds. For the reds, the classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape is always a rough blend of 90% Grenache (from 70-year-old vines) and the balance Syrah and Mourvèdre aged in demi-muids and smaller barrels. The Reserve Auguste Favier comes from 60- to 100-year-old vines and is based largely on Grenache with around 15% Cinsault, aged all in older barrels. This cuvée always shows a seamless, elegant profile. Lastly, and what I would consider her top wine, the Collection Charles Giraud is always a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Mourvèdre, with the Grenache aged in tank and the Mourvèdre in demi-muids. I’ve also included her Châteauneuf-du-Pape Colombis cuvée here, which is released under the Isabel Ferrando label. It’s 100% Grenache from the sandy soils of the Colombis lieu-dit located on the western edge of the appellation.
