Domaine Grand Veneur 1998 Chateauneuf-du-Pape ($21.99)
Very dark ruby color, with ripe aromas of black fruit, pepper and a pleasant mineral note. Full, textured black-fruit and fragrant pepper on the palate, mouth-filling and long. A big wine, acidic and lightly tannic, good now but with plenty of fruit and structure to carry it for aging. U.S. importer: Kysela Pere et Fils Ltd., Winchester, Va. (Aug. 22, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: A natural match with a grilled steak crusted with black peppercorns.

Previous day's wine note
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.|
