One of the best vintage for this cuvée !
To celebrate the 100 years of planting the most beautiful plot in the Domaine, located in the eponymous sector of Farguerol, Lucien and André decided in 1989 to create a special cuvée issued specifically from this plot which became the Cuvée 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 cuvée. The Cuvée Centenaire is only produced during exceptional vintages, when it can fully express the quintessence of the Grenache.

  • Dark ruby in color
  • Complex aromas up until then uniquely reserved to wine having aged for a long period of time, are already present.
  • Powerful and roundness in the mouth: an impressively long finish in the mouth, the tannins are perfectly mellow. There are dominant aromas of undergrowth and leather.
  • Pork
  • Poultry
  • Lamb
