Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | 90

The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape boasts a dense, saturated purple color, as well as an enticing, sweet nose of black fruits, licorice, and violets. Full-bodied, moderately tannic, and impressively concentrated, with a long finish, it will be at its finest between 2003-2016.

A wonderful, masterful wine. Both firm and opulent, it displays a nice dig into the Rhone terroir as it brings out wet earth, mineral and an interesting, chewy tannin structure. A high-voltage drinking experience, with lots of fruit, spice and mocha. 16,665 cases made.

Minor bricking; noticeable meniscus. Very reticent nose - not giving up anything at all, not even after 60 mins in decanter. Mid-palate smooth and silky; finish is "sugary" (in a toasty, brown sugar kind of way). After about 1.5 hours in decanter, started to show more garrigue, spice and black pepper, but lost some of the silk fruit in the mid-palate. Was expecting more viscosity and fruit.

Outstanding wine, notes of cranberries, figs, earth and spice, plum. Delicious, probably at or very near peak
