Henri Bonneau Cuvée Spéciale Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 1998

This offers an aroma of chocolate-covered prunes stewing on the stove, along with notes of brick dust, black currant preserve, fresh espresso and powdered rust. Powerfully tannic and very heady, with layers of overripe fruit on the finish. Drinks like a Bual Madeira infused with black truffles, yet it somehow manages to maintain a sense of freshness. Amazing, but not for everyone. Drink now through 2025. Wine Spectator

Never thought I would love a wine with 16% alcohol that is not fortified, but here it is! Supreme balance and a neverending finish. RIP, master Bonneau. Respect!
