1998 Chateauneuf du Pape

flagRhone / France

Laurent Charvin made a sensational Chateauneuf du Pape in 1998. Comparing the vintage to a mix of 2010 and 2009, his 1998 sports a still youthful color to go with perfumed notes of pepper, black cherries, garrigue and leather. There’s a touch of amber at the rim, and while it’s certainly mature, it’s one of the more lively, youthful wines in the vintage today. This is a beautiful wine to enjoy over the coming 4-5 years, although it will hold nicely for longer. Note, the blend is the normal 85% Grenache and 5% each of Mourvedre, Syrah and Vaccarese, not destemmed, and aged 100% in big concrete tanks. eRobertParker.com.August, 2015
