Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1998

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  4838

Very youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2027. Score - 95. (James Molesworth,, Sept. 30, 2007)
