Tasting Notes

Even if the oak treatment for the 2017 1902 Centenary Carignan is the same as for the Centenary Grenache (16 months in new oak), it seems like the clout and depth of the wine has made it better integrated. It's quite spicy, but the floral character of violets that the variety is capable of comes through quite noticeably. 2017 was one of the earliest and lowest-yielding years in recent times, and the wine has concentration and ripeness but also balance and elegance. This is vibrant and has bright flavor coupled with great freshness. This will be better with some more time in bottle. Only 900 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2019.
