A wine that can flirt with perfection on any given day, the 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is rock-star stuff that has overflowing blackcurrants, chocolate dusted meat, graphite and toasted spice-like aromas and flavors. It has off-the-charts richness and depth on the palate, with layers of sweet fruit and tannin, a smoking mid-palate and serious length. This beauty is at full maturity, but well-stored bottles will continue to cruise going forward. - Jeb Dunnuck

Lush fat and thick with extract; quite oaky but has the sheer concentration of fruit to support the wood. Strong dark berry suggestion of syrah. Finishes with huge but spreading tannins and superb persistence. This very impressive unevolved wine seems even younger than the unfinished '99. I wouldn't call this typical Chateauneuf but it a knockout.
