($40) Ruby-red. Aromas of minerals, animal fur and smoke. Sweeter, fatter and fuller than the Tradition, but not yet showing its fruit component in the middle palate. Best today on the very long finish, which features broad, dusty tannins and a hint of road tar.

The 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Chaupin's dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet bouquet of blackberries, cassis, and a hint of kirsch liqueur. This sexy, full-bodied, opulent 1999 combines fat and flesh with a sense of elegance, purity, and delineation. Already delicious, it will last for 12-15 years.

Purple hues in the center dissipating out to a light pink rim. Raspberry, wet earth, dried plums, and dried flowers on the nose. Overwhelming overripe red and black fruit on the palate are almost balanced by heavy tannins and a ton of acid. Definitely big and mouth filling and the finish is awkwardly forward on the palate - might need some more time to calm down.
