More evolved, the 1988 Chateauneuf du Pape is still drinking nicely and exhibits notions of game, ground pepper, tobacco leaf, mint and rose petal. Medium-bodied, elegant and resolved, it’s another classic Chateauneuf from this estate that’s aging beautifully. I’m not sure if this estate produces one of the longest-lived Chateauneuf du Papes out there, or if it just seems that way due to the fact that they have such a fantastic library of old wines and I’m able to taste more of them! Nevertheless, Clos du Mont Olivet, which is now run by Thierry Sabon, is a brilliant estate that fashions traditional, age-worthy Chateauneuf du Papes that have incredibly broad drink windows. (JD)
Classy and savory, with plenty of character. Has lots of cassis, herb and berry aromas. Full-bodied, with cassis, earth and berry flavors, tight, integrated tannins and a fresh finish.--Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. (JS)
