Wine SpectatorStill young and surprisingly tight, with a racy beam of red and black currant fruit that slowly unwinds on the palate to show hints of spice cake, sweet earth, licorice and mineral. The superlong, racy finish is carried by the riveting acidity. This still needs some cellaring.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Best from 2008 through 2027. 330 cases made.
