The flagship cuvée is the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Cuvée Centenaire and it comes all from the Farguerol lieu-dit located in the northern part of the appellation. It’s normally partially destemmed and brought up mostly in concrete tank. It has a touch of the finesse found in the classic cuvée yet turns up the intensity dial, offering awesome notes of blackberries, strawberries, smoked herbs, blood orange, spice, and spring flower-like aromas and flavors. It’ s stunning on the palate as well, showing a stacked mid-palate, building yet polished tannins, and a monster of a finish. Is this a return of the 1990? This beauty should flirt with perfection and be one of the wines of the vintage.
