Possibly the greatest vintage ever for this cuvee, the 1998 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee des Cadettes is up with the creme de la creme of the vintage. Still fresh, concentrated and lively, with medium to full-bodied richness and polished tannin, it reveals a vibrant ruby color to go with tons of garrigue, leather, chocolate, cured meats and spice.
J.D., Wine Advocate.
Bright ruby color. Super ripe aromas of blackberry, plum, roast coffee and charred oak. A wine of great sweetness, ripeness and depth; almost too big for the mouth. A step up in concentration and texture from the normale. Really explosive fruit currently hides the suave tannins. One of the stars of the '98 vintage.
Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar.
Always an enticing, alluring wine, with a plush texture and a sweet mocha note that caresses the red and black plum and blackberry fruit flavors. Shows its typical spice box, sweet licorice, cocoa and chocolate-covered raisin notes without ever losing its minerally spine. A gorgeous, irresistible style that has rounded off now and is ready to drink.
