Nose is all about the barn yard. There's a little dookie in the mix. The texture is lush but a bit like rare meat. There is almost a blood component to it. There is a presence of rasberry on the fruit side. This is not a wine that fruit bombers are going to dig. I like the style. If there is one complaint it is that the wine is a little dis-jointed and all over the place. I think it might settle down in the bottle over the next couple...

The 1999 Chacirc;teauneuf du Pape is elegant, with slightly high acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2003ndash;2015.

The Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape is fashioned from purchased wine which Guigal then blends and ages in large wooden foudres. The potentially outstanding 2000 is a blend from 25 different Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape growers. It exhibits a deep ruby color as well as a sweet nose of pepper, black cherries, and earth. A spicy, fleshy, Provenccedil;al-styled wine with considerable glycerine and depth, it should drink well for at least a decade.

Even better [than the 1999] is the 2000 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape. It reveals a deeper ruby/purple color along with sumptuous scents of creacute;me de cassis, kirsch liquer, licorice, and Provenccedil;al herbs. Boasting abundant glycerine, fuller body, additional black fruit characteristics, low acidity, ripe tannin, and a long finish, it should be silky and accessible upon release. Anticipated maturity: nowndash;2015.

The 1998 Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape is the finest Guigal has produced since 1990. Moreover, unlike previous years where there have been multiple bottlings if this cuveacute;e (leading to bottle variation), the 1998 was bottled all at once. It is a full-bodied, classic Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape revealing a dark ruby color, copious quantities of kirsch liqueur, pepper, balsam, and spicy aromas. The wine displays the vintagersquo;s tell-tale glycerin and expansiveness, some tannin, yet it is lush and approachable. Drink it over the next decade.

Guigal is best know for its legendary Cote-Rotie and Hermitage, but the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape fully deserves a place alongside its more renowned siblings, with elegant refinement and subtle, soil-driven intensity. Its dark, pungent flavors of black cherry and spiced plum are richly prominent, constantly referring back to a deeply gripping minerality that tethers the complex aromas of fruit, spice, fresh meat and black tea. It feels like a sphere, seemless and harmonious, staining the palate with its long, fragrant length.

The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet nose of new saddle leather, garrigue, pepper, kirsch, and blackberries. Dense, full-bodied, and tasty, it is best drunk during its first decade of life.

Deep red. Very ripe nose offers intense red berry aromas and distinctly meaty, musky garrigue accents. Very rich and deep, with powerful, jammy raspberry and cherry flavors, dusty tannins and a long, chocolatey finish. Picks up some exotic spice notes on the back, which add vivacity to this chewy, somewhat brooding animal.

Winemaker's Notes:

"80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre and others from 45 year-old vines. A deep dark red in the glass with aromas of spices and mature red fruits. In the mouth, round tannins with powerful complexity. A rich unctuous wine with notes of mature plums, hazelnuts and red fruits. A very rich wine full of harmony and balance. Serve with: Red meat, game bird and cheese. "
