Le Songe de Catherine 2019 - Châteauneuf-du-Pape
2019 is a superb, colorful and beautifully crafted vintage. After the many rains that marked the spring of 2018, the 2019 vintage confirms a return to normal spring rainfall. The perfect sanitary condition of the raisins has made it possible to produce wines with intense colours, unctuous and generous, with a very beautiful aromatic purity. We can already anticipate a fantastic aging potential for the 2019 vintage.

Glistening ruby-red. Ripe and blue fruits, potpourri, incense and exotic spices, on the expansive nose. Stains the palate with sappy boysenberry, raspberry and floral pastille flavors energized by building mineral and white pepper notes. Conveys depth and power but comes off lively. Delivers emphatic floral lift on the impressive long, gently tannic finish.
