Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1998 (1500ml)

$459

The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape from the Michel family was firing on all cylinders for this retrospective... beautiful on all accounts. Garrigue, truffle, leather and plenty of ripe fruit flow to a full-bodied, mouth filling and unctuously textured feel on the palate.... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Very traditional and clean CdP but lacking something extra to make it special or unique. Still tasted fresh so age wasn't an issue. Good just not great. #bastilleday

The style of CDP I enjoy most with the perfect amount of age. Great balance of fruit and earthiness.

First time having an aged chataneuf du pape, different than I expected. Nose of prunes, kind of like an amarone or old Turley zin. In the mouth sweet dark chocolate, maybe like a cherry cordial. Also red meat. Medium body and pale color, which was interesting given how strong the flavor profile. Long finish. Overall a really great wine.

2-3 years past prime. Drinkable but not terribly enjoyable.
