1999 Chateau de la Gardine Chateauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1431618 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The dark ruby/purple-colored 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape displays an impressive constitution, with full body, considerable structure, and admirable delineation. Spice box, vanillin, and black fruits show through, but the wine is big, backward, and needing 2-3 years of cellaring, somewhat atypical for a 1999. It should last for 15+ years. (RMP)  (10/2000)

Jeb Dunnuck

 The 1999 Château de la Gardine Châteauneuf-du-Pape possesses a slight roasted profile with a nutty, ripe nose of scorched earth, asphalt, dark fruit and spice notes. The palate is better with medium to full body, a ripe, mouthfilling texture and a long finish. I’d drink these over the next couple of years.  (4/2009)

Wine Spectator

 Good flavors, with licorice and chalk. Medium-bodied, with nice red and black fruit and a firm tannin structure. Intense, crisp aftertaste. Drink now through 2005.  (8/2001)

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
