    Chateauneuf du Pape 1998
    Cuvee Speciale, H. Bonneau
    3wisl
    Bottle (6)


    "Bonneau’s 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Speciale is something along the lines of 16.5%-plus natural alcohol with about 4-5% residual sugar. It is an amazing wine that tastes relatively dry, with huge extract of blackberries, roasted meats, and sweet strawberries and cherries intermixed with licorice, smoke and pepper. It makes a massive introduction on the palate and expands vertically, as if it were a skyscraper. It is intense, rich, and compelling, and no doubt capable of lasting 30-40 years." (96pts Robert M. Parker Jr., Wine Advocate #163, Feb 2006)


    Estimate: $3,750 - $4,750.

    Shipping Restriction: Please note that we cannot ship to addresses in Massachusetts, so please bid accordingly.
