A solid step up over the '98, the Close des Papes 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape (one of Paul-Vincent's favorites) offers a more youthful color to go with Burgundian notes of spice, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice. More fresh and lively, with medium to full-bodied richness, it has a youthful feel and has another decade of longevity. - Jeb Dunnuck

Chewy intensely flavored and fairly deep but rather tight following the bottling. As usual for this estate in a rather claret-like style without the obvious surmaturite of some Chateauneufs. Firm acidity and sweet fine tannins give this wine the backbone to age slowly. Finishes with subtle persistence.
