Clos du Mont-Olivet Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Good full medium red. Pure, vibrant, captivating nose combines raspberry, garrigue, lavender and pepper. Then lush, broad and silky in the mouth, with a distinctly savory quality leavening the wine's inherent sweetness. In fact, this is more noteworthy for its energy and structure than for weight or thickness. Finishes with suave, fine-grained tannins, outstanding subtle lingering perfume and a light touch. Classic, gripping Chateauneuf du Pape with a long future ahead of it. I underrated this wine at the outset, and I believe Pierre Sabon did as well when he described it in the early going as 'rounder and fatter than the 1999.' (May 2009)
