Quite ripe-tasting, with a nice rusticness; and quite jammy, with raspberry dark plum and spice flavors, peppery notes on the finish. A powerhouse that needs time to flesh out.
The outstanding, saturated dark plum-colored 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee possesses notes of scorched earth, roasted herbs, smoked duck, and a boatload of kirsch liqueur fruitiness. Full-bodied, with moderate tannin and impressive purity and concentration, this wine should be cellared for 1-3 years, and drunk over the following 12-15.
