2003 Les Cailloux (Lucien & Andre Brunel) "Cuvée Centenaire" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1019112 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark red color. Intensely spicy and rich on the nose, with vibrant aromas of kirsch, raspberry, wild strawberry, anise and fresh rose. Amazingly concentrated, juicy and pure in the mouth, with compelling, energetic flavors of dark raspberry, cherry preserves, poached rhubarb and rose pastille. The minerally finish, which features completely buffered tannins, builds inexorably and goes on and on. This comes from vines planted in 1889, according to Brunel. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2006)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Rich, powerful and almost port-like, Brunel’s 2003 Cuvee Centenaire is locked and loaded with notions of kirsch liqueur, garrigue, roasted meats and licorice that flow to a full-bodied, concentrated Chateauneuf du Pape that possesses a core of sweet fruit, gorgeous texture and a heady finish that seems to go on and on. Fully mature, with completely integrated tannin, it is certainly not for the low alcohol crowd, yet offers up a thrillingly rich drinking experience. I don’t see any upside here and would enjoy bottles over the coming handful of years. (JD) Inner quote mark (6/2013)
