Winemaker's Notes:

"The dark ruby-colored 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape, a standard blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre, is an elegant, light, Burgundian-like effort with soft, cherry fruit, and a consumer-friendly style. Owned by the Brunier family (also proprietors of the famed Vieux-Telegraphe), Chateau La Roquette produces modern-styled, richly fruity Chateauneuf du Papes meant to be consumed during their first decade of life."
