The name "Centenaire" refers to how the age of vines for this wine are 100+ years old. This wine come from of the most sought-after winemakers of Europe at the moment, Jean-Marc Lafage, lends his expertise with Southern European varietals to several top estates in both France and Spain.
Blend: 80% Grenache Blanc/Grenache Gris, 20% Roussane
"The 2011 Cuvee Centenaire is another intriguing blend that demonstrates the brilliance of Eric Solomon in finding wines of such high quality that are priced remarkably low. It is composed of 80% Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris (the latter grape is rarely seen) blended with 20% Roussanne, and aged in both stainless steel (70%) and new French oak (30%). The Grenache vines, which are over 100 years of age, are planted within sight of the Mediterranean Sea. Lots of wet gravel, crushed rock, honeysuckle, acacia flower, quince and white currant notes give this wine a character that could easily be mistaken as a serious white Hermitage from the northern Rhone. Perhaps it's the wine’s minerality or power and richness. This evolved, medium gold-colored effort offers fresh, full-throttle flavors that would marry beautifully with intensely flavored fish dishes, saffron-laced seafood soups, or shellfish."
