International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 106

($79; 16% alcohol; this is the successor to the Cuvee du Cinquantenaire, which was made only in 1999; from a selection of the estate's oldest grenache parcels; aged partly in one-, two- and three-year-old barriques and partly in cuve) Bright ruby-red. Knockout sappy aromas of cassis, black cherry, raspberry, violet, smoke, truffle and dark chocolate, with a freshening note of oak spice; has a roasted ripeness but comes across as more vibrant than the Mon Aieul. Huge, lush and thick but almost magically bright, with liqueur-like flavors of dark fruits and game. A wonderfully rich, sappy Chateauneuf with great lift, grip and length. The huge but smooth tannins coat the entire palate.

Extremely nice but not extraordinary. Tanins need time to soften. A bit of a disappointment but only because my expectations were so high.
