Cuvée Centenaire takes its name from the 100 year-old vines of Grenache Blanc and Gris Jean-Marc Lafage farms just a few kilometers from the Mediterranean on gravelly clay soils. One of the greatest white wine values in our portfolio, the final wine blends these ancient grapes with up to 20% younger vine Roussanne. To make a wine that is both rich and balanced the grapes are harvested in two passes, the first when they just reach ripeness and are still high in acidity and a second pass when the grapes are fully ripe with rich fruit flavors. The wine is then aged in a combination of tank and new French oak barrels. - Winery Notes

Wine AdvocateA wine that always over-delivers, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Centenaire Blanc (Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Roussanne) is fresh and crisp, with medium-bodied notes of citrus, white peach and a hint of pineapple. It's about as quaffable as they come and has real depth and length. Drink it over the coming year.
