The real taste of Châteauneuf in a ’99 — this is a good effort in this vintage. Leather and game, curried grilled meat and smoke, plum and blackberry, all in a fresh, intense package. But it turns a bit harsh and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2007.

The 1997 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, La Bernardine (100% Grenache) exhibits a Provençal herb, kirsch, licorice, cherry and spicy-scents nose. Medium to full-bodied, soft, and round, with heady alcohol in the supple finish, it will drink well young, and keep for 5-7 years.

The 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is an impressive, seductive, sexy effort. Notes of kirsch liqueur, pepper, and herbs jump from the glass of this 100% Grenache cuvee. Big, chewy, and fruit-driven, most readers will find it disarming and appealing. It should drink well for 10andndash;15 years.

Medium red-ruby. Aromatic, wild aromas of redcurrant, leather, smoke and game. Juicy, firm-edged flavors of smoky red fruits. Bright and fairly tannic but not especially deep.

Chapoutier's Châteauneuf-du-Pape, La Bernardine may be outstanding. It is drinking even better from bottle than it is from cask. Chapoutier feels it is his finest since the 1900, which he still rates as superior, followed by the 1995. The 1998 exhibits a deep plum/garnet color, and a big, smoky nose of dried herbs, black cherry jam, plums, and licorice. There is excellent concentration, considerable quantities of spice box on the flavors, a dense, chewy mid-palate, and a long, moderately tannic finish. It can be drunk now as well as over the next 12-15 years.

Chapoutier's Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Bernardine is one of the more successful and denser wines for the 1996 vintage. Made from yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare, the wine boasts a deep ruby color, a spicy, herbes de Provence, peppery, earthy nose, sweet cherry fruit flavors, medium to full body, and surprising density and length for a 1996. La Bernadine will be accessible upon its release, yet last for 10-15 years, atypically long for a 1996 Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
