Reply to "1990 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape"

Had this to celebrate a friends first anniversary.
Nose - cedar, leather, earth, wet leaf, cherry, black raspberry, currant and floral.
Palate - lovely integration of fruit and earthy characteristics....seemless. An almost subtle blue cheese note is really nice, cedar, leather, tart cherries, meaty and savoury. So elegant....wow. Aerate it and it explodes.
Finish is long....complex and layered and come at u at different angles....the earth, wet leaf, chery, cedar, leather, herbs and a myriad of other things. This really makes u think! I love it.
Almost classic...a bit flater on the palate then the last 90 but none the less unreal and an experience
94+points
