Distinctive very monolithic clean pure and crisp with fresh fruit zipping along the palate. Turning a bit tough and tannic it holds back a lot now delivering little seduction hiding well its leather game truffle and black fruit character yet it's undeniably balanced. Made to age. Best from 2010 through 2030. 15000 cases made. –PM

The atypically Grenache-dominated 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is fully mature and gives up tons of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and a touch of gaminess in its full-bodied, layered and ripe personality. More rounded and sexy... The atypically Grenache-dominated 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is fully mature and gives up tons of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and a touch of gaminess in its full-bodied, layered and ripe personality. More rounded and sexy than most vintages, it has no hard edges, plenty of mid-palate depth and a great finish. I see no reason to delay gratification, but it will certainly hold for 5-10 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
