Cailloux Chateauneuf Du Pape Centenaire Rouge, 2010
$2,199.92 / case(12)
An exceptional fine cuvee with an incomparably long finish in the mouth and only produced during great vintages. Terroir: to celebrate the 100 years of planting the most beautiful plot in the domaine located in the eponymous sector of farguerol lucien and andre decided in 1989 to create a special cuvee issued specifically from this plot which became the cuvee centenaire. The soil and subsoil don’t have much limestone but there is a lot of clay on both the surface and deep down in the ground. This blue and compact clay gives the wine its mineral property (graphite). Its exposure gives the vines perfect sunshine and the often-blowing violent mistral contributes to the concentration of sugar and aromas which are used to make this cuvee. The cuvee centenaire is only produced during exceptional vintages such as in 2007 or 2010 when it can fully express the quintessence of the grenache. Tasting notes: a rich and expressive nose: blackcurrants blackberries … Powerful and roundness
