The prodigious saturated opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de Cinquantenaire (200 cases) is a candidate for the wine of the vintage. A 100% Grenache cuvee aged in older demi-muids it is exceptionally full-bodied with a fabulous perfume of blackberry liqueur cassis minerals spice and flowers. The texture is sumptuous and the wine accessible although readers lucky enough to latch onto a few bottles should cellar it for 2-3 years and watch the magic unfold over the following two decades. Awesome stuff!
