Chateauneuf du Pape - Vins - Domaine André Brunel - Les Cailloux

Centenaire 1989 - Decanter - Matt Walls : 98/100 : 98/100


This inaugural vintage of the Cuvée Centenaire has a different label to subsequent vintages. It's dense, juicy and fruity still, full of power and vibrancy. It has such lightness on the palate for such a powerful wine. A little balsamic touch to the finish, still with juicy, fresh, sweet tannins, and so long. Soaring, complex, balanced, a beautiful wine. Fully mature, but shows no sign of giving up any time soon. A phenomenal Châteauneuf, that ably illustrates why it was first produced.
