Le Vieux Donjon's 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape offers soaring aromas of barbecue spice, licorice, herbs, tar, black cherries, and blackberries. This powerful, rich, full-bodied effort is more up-front and accessible than most vintages, but there is no compromise in the richness and mouthfilling characteristics consistently offered by this estate. Drink this sexy, compelling 1999 between 2004-2020.

This takes a decidedly old-school approach with its very distinctive bay leaf and juniper notes leading the way, along with roasted mesquite and alder wood. The core of steeped black currant, roasted plum and blackberry fruit waits in reserve while the long, ganache- and tar-filled finish has nice rugged grip, with a peppery echo. Should cellar wonderfully. Best from 2015 through 2030. 8,000 cases made. –JM
