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

$495

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

Pepper and spice bomb. One glass down and you are blown out of your mind with this 16 degree alcohol monster. But you only feel it in the head, so fresh and tasty in the mouth. Powerful yet seductive at the same time. Would love to try the same wine 5-10 years younger and get blasted out of this universe. Slight bitterness from the tannins at the end. A good time to open the perfectly kept bottle and many years to come.

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!
