International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 100

($30) Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet pastille and mint. Dense but juicy and penetrating, with enticing flavors of black fruits, licorice and mint. Tightly wound but already quite aromatic in the middle and on the very long finish. Structured to age. (Europvin/Christopher Cannan Selections, Bordeaux, France)

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 138

One of the undeniable stars of the vintage, the 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve is a blockbuster in a year that did not generally produce wines of such power and richness (of course, it includes the declassified Vieilles Vignes cuvee in the blend). A deep purple color is followed by aromas of cassis, kirsch liqueur, flowers, plums, and blackberries. Full-bodied, multi-layered, and fabulously extracted, with low acidity, sweet tannin, and magnificent purity, this is a sumptuous, prodigious Chateauneuf du Pape that should drink well for 15-20 years. It is hard to believe that something this special could have been produced in 1999, but there are a half dozen or so wines at this level in 1999.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

Good sweetness, with full-bodied, rich and ripe vanilla, mocha, blackberry, plum and mineral notes that add complexity to the long finish and tobacco-scented, lingering aftertaste. Well-made Châteauneuf. 500 cases made.
