While 1998 was a bit of a sleeper in Piedmonte, it was one of the great vintages for the Southern Rhone Valley, home of Chateauneuf du Pape. Never a wine that needs too much aging, the 1998 Chateauneuf wines are drinking so well today. They are still packed with ripe fruit but at the same time are soft and caressing in the mouth. A real hedonistic glassful from a producer of deep, complex and often savory old school Chateauneuf.
