This has a nice sappy edge to its kirsch and currant fruit, with notes of fig bread, licorice and shiso leaf running throughout. The long, solid finish has nice buried grip and invigorating acidity. Should flesh out... This has a nice sappy edge to its kirsch and currant fruit, with notes of fig bread, licorice and shiso leaf running throughout. The long, solid finish has nice buried grip and invigorating acidity. Should flesh out nicely in the cellar. Best from 2009 through 2030. 70 cases imported. -JM

A high-class offering, the complex 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Centenaire boasts a medium ruby color as well as a big, sweet kiss of kirsch liqueur intermixed with notions of cedar, spice box, licorice, and lavender. In the mouth, the wine is spicy, but the roundness, heady levels of glycerin, high alcohol, and what the French call sucrosite are well-displayed. The Cuvee Centenaire, is a combination of 80% tank-aged Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah aged in small barrels. This is a hedonistic, complex beauty that will drink well for 12-14 years.

Explosively perfumed, exotic bouquet of ripe raspberry, cherry and incense. Lush, velvety red berry liqueur flavors display an amazing combination of depth and vivacity, with slow-building smoked meat and succulent herb qualities. This is already complex, and though it has the depth and balance to age I suspect that it will give considerable early pleasure. Brunel told me that the yield for this wine in 2006 was about 26 hectoliters per hectare.
