Château La Mondotte Comtes de Neipperg Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

$239

An amazing tour de force in winemaking, this massive, opaque black/purple-colored offering boasts an extraordinarily pure nose of black fruits intermixed with cedar, vanillin, fudge, and espresso. It is unctuously-textured, with exhilarating levels of blackberry/cassis fruit and extract, as well as multiple dimensions that unfold on the palate. The 50-second finish reveals moderately high tannin. Despite its similarity to dry vintage port, it is not a wine to drink early. It is a colossal wine! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035.

This was the star of Thanksgiving. The barnyard nose was (strangely) inviting with hints of white pepper. But the flavor... oh the flavor, was excellent. We let this breathe for an hour and could/should have let it breathe for another hour. The flavors changed from spices and cherry to smooth cola. A very long finish of pepper, toast and liquid smoke.
