Paul Avril et Fils Clos des Papes 1999 is a classic Châteauneuf style.

Clos des Papes is one of the best wineries in the entire southern Rhône, with a rich history dating back to the 18th century. The current owner, Paul Vincent Avril, took over for his father in 1988 following oenology studies in Beaune, and now runs the estate, which produces fine Rhône wines made to age like great Burgundies. Clos des Papes produces one red and one white Châteauneuf-du-Pape - focusing on pure quality.

"A solid step up over the '98, the Close des Papes 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape (one of Paul-Vincent's favorites) offers a more youthful color to go with Burgundian notes of spice, dried flowers, black cherries and licorice. More fresh and lively, with medium to full-bodied richness, it has a youthful feel and has another decade of longevity." Jeb Dunnuck
