Lot #276. M. Chapoutier Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Bernardine 1990

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 92 RP.
"While it is apparent that the Chapoutiers are making thrilling wines from Hermitage and Cote Rotie, they have also made extraordinary progress with their vineyard in Chateauneuf du Pape. The 1990 Chateauneuf du Pape-La Bernadine is significantly better than the 1989. The deep dark ruby/garnet color is followed by a huge nose of sweet, roasted, raspberry fruit intermingled with scents of peanuts, fruitcake, and spicy pepper. This enormously rich, expansive, full-bodied wine exhibits an unctuous texture, exceptional concentration, and a long, moderately tannic finish." Wine Advocate #83, Oct 1992
Provenance: The Brochet Cellar
Notes: Lightly scuffed, lightly damp stained, lightly bin soiled labels.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $80
