This was the second tasting of these wines, because the first, held several months earlier, was so extraordinary. I wrote this tasting up, for the most part, in Issue 138 of The Wine Advocate. While the food was not up to the standards of restaurant Daniel, it was still very good. But the wines were even better at the Four Seasons than they were two months earlier at Daniel, vindicating my belief that this vintage for Châteauneuf du Pape is putting on enormous weight and richness in the bottle. It is undoubtedly the greatest vintage I have ever tasted of Châteauneuf du Pape. For comments on the wines, see Issue 138 of The Wine Advocate.
