Chateauneuf du Pape, Cuvee Cadettes
International Wine Cellar:
"91 out of 100…Fashioned from a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre, and 10% Syrah, the 1989 is dense and firm, but it never seemed the same after an aggressive fining and filtration partially denuded this cuvee. Dugas admits that these earlier vintages were intensely filtered, and the percentage of new oak utilized was higher. Since the late nineties, filtration has been eliminated and the amount of new oak reduced, both encouraging developments. The wine reveals a more international as opposed to southern Rhone style, but it is still a very good wine. The fully mature 1989 needs to be drunk." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate
