Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 92
A fine offering, the 1998 has closed down, but there is no doubting its fabulous potential. The color is a dense purple. The wine reveals high tannin, huge body, and classy black fruits intermixed with minerals, spice box, cedar, and tobacco. A long, persistent, tannic finish gives this majestic effort a closed but formidable personality. Patience will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 91
Milk chocolate with blackberry and cappuccino on the nose. Full-bodied, with a brown sugar and coffee flavor. Silky tannins. Long and caressing. Reminds me of old-style Pomerols from the '40s. This is a wine that has a lot of bottle variation, but this one is beautiful.—'88/'98 Bordeaux retrospective (2008). Drink now.-JS
