Snap, Crackle, Châteauneuf-du-Pape! | Lot 154

If there’s one thing we know, it’s that you can never have enough (or rather, eneuf) Châteauneuf!

Lot Details

Those Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre-based red blends have a powerful hold on oenophiles around the world. With its hot climate and big galet stones, this Southern Rhône wonderland produces a delicious, herbaceous and earthy delight that’s fit for one of the world’s most powerful entities (it literally translates to “The Pope’s New Castle”).

In 1998, the Southern Rhône enjoyed a superlative vintage, with a hot growing season spelled by well-timed rains that allowed the Grenache and Syrah to ripen under ideal conditions. The best vintage since 1990, the wines are a triumph pretty much across the board. And, lucky for us, they appear to be reaching that sweet spot of drinking where each sip unveils even more complexities than the last! It’s all just so perfect that ten lucky bidders get to join Tom Black at 360 Bistro on Saturday, April 23, 2022 for an 18-bottle horizontal of 1998’s from the greatest producers in the region! Beaucastel, M. Chapoutier, Domaine de la Janasse, Pierre Usseglio, Vieux Donjon, Vieux Telegraphe… they’re all ready for a tasting you won’t soon forget!
