Lot #838. Domaine Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Cuvée Cathelin 1998

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Rhône, Hermitage.
Score: 98 RP.
"The opaque black/purple-colored 1998 Hermitage Cuvee Cathelin (200 cases) offers a huge nose of smoked licorice, blackberry, cassis, new saddle leather, and vanillin. Tasting like liqueur of Syrah, it is extremely full-bodied and awesomely concentrated, with formidable tannin as well as mind-blowing levels of extract and density. The tannin is sweet, and the wine seamless for a young Chave Hermitage." Wine Advocate #133, Feb 2001
Notes: Lightly scuffed capsule, lightly torn label, #01479.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $2,750
