Domaine Raymond Usseglio Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Girard, 1999

This Chateauneuf is 90% Grenache from vineyards planted from the 1920s to the mid-1960s. And it is at a good stage for drinking right now.

Medium to light crimson. Very fruit forward, ripe and lovely. Grenache strawberry with spice and just a hint of cassis. Ripe, ripe fruit, clean and well defined. Gains depth and concentration over the course of the meal. If I were tasting blind, I would guess that it might be from 2010 or 2012 rather than 1999. Long finish.
