Domaine André Mathieu's La Centenaire is a red Châteauneuf-du-Pape hailing from a small 1 hectare plot. Here, all 13 varieties are planted with Grenache Noir dominating. The clay-sandy soils in this vineyard help retain moisture during the warm growing season. Wines are vinified with a long maceration to extract all the aromatics and tannins required to build an age-worthy and intense wine. After completing the fermentation, the wines are aged in large neutral oak barrels to soften the tannins and harmonise the wines without imparting oak flavors. The resulting wine is a rich and complex blend with notes of red and dark fruit, spice, and earth.
