Saint Préfert

The single-minded Isabel Ferrando has exploded into the top echelon of Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers. Previously a banker, she purchased her original 13.2 hectares of vineyards in late 2002, timely after the catastrophic storms. Aided by star Châteauneuf-du-Pape oenologist Philippe Cambi, she has been blessed by an initial run of great vintages and even more spectacular results. This is an absolute star domaine.
