Wonderfully fragrant and impressively ripe. What Châteauneuf is all about--plenty of wet earth, mineral, plum, sweet tannins and sweet fruit. A cascade of pleasure, full-bodied and long on the sparkling finish. Drink now through 2015. (PM)
From a vintage that flies under the radar, the 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve is a beauty that’s drinking at point today. Pepper, garrigue, saddle leather and spice all show here. This is a textbook Pegau to drink over the coming 4-5 years. (JD)
Good bright ruby. Lively, multidimensional aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, licorice, leather, game and dark chocolate. Densely packed but juicy, with notes of licorice and roasted nuts. Very nicely balanced Chateauneuf in an old-fashioned, headspinning style. Finishes very long, with fine tannins. Should be drinkable upon release but capable of developing for a decade or more. Ultimately a bit less thick than the '98 but more refreshing. (ST)
