Tasted last weekend over several hours. Hot, tannic and awkward. Very forward super-ripe Grenache in the front but little else except for alcohol (16%!) and drying tannins. I don't know if time will help this come around, but we were all disappointed. The '98 Beaucasatel and '98 Cailloux Cuvee Centennaire were much more pleasurable then the Capo.

The 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence, the finest example of this offering I have yet tasted (even better than the 1989, 1990, and 1995), spent four years in small barrels prior to being bottled unfiltered. A spectacular effort, it is a monumen... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 1998 Domaine du Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence 750ml

One of the riper, more exotic wines of the vintage, this gushes with black currant, fig and blackberry fruit, all of which has melded together and is starting to show a corrupt edge, while the sweet bacon, spice, mesquite and clove-studded blood oran...

Winemaker's Notes:

"The debut vintage for their luxury old-vine cuvee, which is over 90% Grenache, but in theory made from all 13 authorized red wine varietals in Chateauneuf du Pape, the 1998 Cuvee da Capo is a monumental Chateauneuf du Pape. It was actually splendid to drink in its first 5-6 years of life, and then shut down very firmly, and is now just coming out of this dormant period. It is much more delineated than it was in its fat, grapy, almost overripe youthful state, and now shows extraordinary precision and definition. It is still a massive wine, opaque ruby/purple to the rim, with notes of camphor, meat juices, roasted herbs, licorice, pepper, and spice. Thick, unctuously textured, but with zesty acidity and sweet tannin, the wine is still very young, and not yet an adolescent...100" WA 06/10
