Cailloux Lucien et Andre Brunel Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire Proprietary Blend Wine 1995

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

1995 was a powerful vintage for Brunel. The Cuvee Centenaire remains a young promising wine offering notes of licorice cedar vanilla and sweet black currant/cherry fruit presented in a full-bodied virile style. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. From this impeccably run estate Andre Brunel produces 7 000 cases of a traditionally made regular Chateauneuf du Pape and when possible about 500 cases of Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire. The Cuvee Centenaire emerges from 114-year old Grenach

Subtle yet complex aromas are rich and intriguing and the flavors carry through on the palate with notes of spice ripe cherry and raisin cedar and wild herb. Well defined showing good intensity in a classic regional style. Drink now through 2005. TM Wine Spectator.
