    October 21, 2014 - @Lucien et André Brunel tasting, Stockholm
    A great wine at a great age. The velvet felling on the tongue is a pleasure to experience. It really takes some time for it to open up. Some heat in the finish.

    September 3, 2014 - not very developed (though it's only been 7 yrs). I will re-rate higher in 8 yrs. and won't touch until then. The seemingly high alcohol masks considerable structure. Massive wine

    August 1, 2014 - Lunch with Chris and Joey; Non-Blind (Bin 75): A much better example than the last bottle this showed the ripeness of the vintage and more loosely knit structure than I am familiar with in Centenaire, fig, raspberry, cherry, cranberry, brown spices, ginger bread; very good but I don't think this will last as long as previous great vintages have.

    June 25, 2014 - A typical Wednesday evening in Sydney: Garrigue, candied orange peel, strawberry and licorice - it actually makes me think of Rayas in its aromatic profile. Excellent grip and backbone with just slightly plush fruit overlaid. Wines like this make me wonder why I don't drink more Grenache. First time I've tried a Cuvée Centenaire and I'm definitely keen for more.

    March 9, 2014 - Robert Kacher Selections (Washington, DC): A big, powerful, rich wine (shocking, right?). Aromas of fig paste, ginger bread, dried roses, prunes and baked plums. Bold and generous on the palate, the sweet red and black fruits are baked together with chestnut, red licorice, sage, cinnamon and iron. The tannins are smooth and rounded, and there's actually some medium acid to keep this from being to pie-filling-like. A big and beautiful 2007, although I'm not sure how this will do in the long term. From 100-year-old vines.
