Catarina 2019 - Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2019 vintage is undoubtedly one of the greatest vintages for the appellation since 1998.
It offers us power and elegance, freshness and balance, which anticipates a great aging potential.

The Sommelier's tips
Serving temperature : 15 - 17°C.
Decanting : 1 hour.
Lots of black raspberries, dried flowers, Provençal garrigue, and sandalwood notes emerge from the 2019 Châteauneuf du Pape Catarina, a 100% Grenache cuvée from a handful of terroirs that was raised all in neutral oak. Medium to full-bodied and elegant, with a great finish, it’s well worth following over the coming 10 – 15 years.

Saturated ruby. A deeply perfumed bouquet evokes ripe cherry, Chambord, exotic spices and garrigue, and a suave potpourri nuance builds in the glass. Broad and pliant in the mouth offering plush red and blue fruit, spice cake and candied lavender flavors supported and energized by and undercurrent of juicy and acidity. Round, slowly building tannins add shape to a long spicy finish that leaves cherry liqueur and succulent herb notes behind.
