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

We had another one of these this evening. Some cedar and cherries on the nose and a palate with ripe red berries and a complex finish that didn't fade. This is about the finest CdP I've ever had. 98 now and possibly still improving.

Thanks for the note board-o. Do you think beaucastel in general needs more time than the majority of other cdp producers or do you think a lot of the top cdp wines from a good vintage need almost 30 years of age?
