Proprietor Michel Maret’s 1998 Vieilles Vignes displays oodles of violets, truffle, forest floor, kirsch and raspberries in a medium to full-bodied, heady, dense style. The tannins are resolved and the wine savory, fleshy, and oh, so pure and hedonistic. This is a very satisfying Chateauneuf du Pape that has reached full maturity, where it should stay for at least 5-8 more years. (RP)
Bright deep ruby-red. Extremely fresh, rather Burgundian red and black fruit aromas complicated by floral and smoky elements. Opulent and seamless in the mouth, with compellingly vibrant red fruit and spice flavors. At once creamy and precise. As in the above samples, the tooth-coating tannins are substantial, but here they are quite fine. Very long, vibrant finish. My style of Chateauneuf. (ST)
