2001 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvée Centenaire, Les Cailloux (Brunel)

Southern Rhône

$125.00 $100.00 per Bottle


4 Bottles




"The Cuvée Centenaire is produced from ancient vine (planted in 1889) Grenache (80% of the blend, along with 8% Syrah and 12% Mourvèdre). The 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Centenaire is superior to the 2000, but slightly behind the 1998. This fabulous wine boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as a provocative perfume of incense, black tea, plums, figs, and kirsch liqueur. As it sits in the glass, this full-bodied, dense 2001 offers up notes of pepper, smoke, and balsam wood. Rich and voluptuous with great length, massive body, and a structured, long, heady, tannic finish, its alcohol must be over 15%, but it is well concealed by the wine's great concentration. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #151
