Very traditional and clean CdP but lacking something extra to make it special or unique. Still tasted fresh so age wasn't an issue. Good just not great. #bastilleday

First time having an aged chataneuf du pape, different than I expected. Nose of prunes, kind of like an amarone or old Turley zin. In the mouth sweet dark chocolate, maybe like a cherry cordial. Also red meat. Medium body and pale color, which was interesting given how strong the flavor profile. Long finish. Overall a really great wine.

2-3 years past prime. Drinkable but not terribly enjoyable.

Very pleasantly surprised for a producer I don't know well and for '98. Speciale extra Mourvèdre?
