1999 Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1132552 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A solid step up over the '98, the Close des Papes 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape (one of Paul-Vincent's favorites) offers a more youthful color to go with Burgundian notes of spice, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice. More fresh and lively, with medium to full-bodied richness, it has a youthful feel and has another decade of longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (9/2015)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated red-ruby. Complex nose melds redcurrant, kirsch, iron, tobacco, mocha and spices. Chewy, intensely flavored and fairly deep, but rather tight following the bottling. As usual for this estate, in a rather claret-like style, without the obvious surmaturite of some Chateauneufs. Firm acidity and sweet, fine tannins give this wine the backbone to age slowly. Finishes with subtle persistence. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2002)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Earthy, mushroomy and developed, with something dank that is evocative of attics and dust. Finely milled tannins with soft tannins and a charming milk-chocolate character on the finish. Still has a very indicative garrigue herbiness on the palate which makes this Rhône rather than Burgundy. Elegant and mature, with a lovely edge of petrichor. (RH) 18/20 points Inner quote mark (10/2018)
