1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes 1999 Tardieu-Laurent
From the very good 1999 vintage and scoring 92-4/100 Parker points, "The tannic, closed, mammothly-endowed 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 95% Grenache and 5% Syrah and Counoise. Its opaque dense purple color is followed by a reticent nose of earth, minerals, black fruits, and licorice, massive body, blistering tannin levels, and a firm, enormously-endowed finish. It has the potential to be great, coming across structurally more like a young Beaucastel than a typical Grenache-based Chateauneuf du Pape." Drink now - 2024.
