Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

This is a Medoc 1998 that is revealing more mid-palate, flesh, concentration, and sweeter tannin than it did during its previous year and a half in barrel. A blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 38% Merlot, this black/purple-colored claret exhibits sweet aromas of licorice, incense, Asian spices, cedar, plums, and black currants. Full-bodied and sweet on the entry, with good acidity, definition, and ripe tannin, it will be drinkable young, yet last for 12-15 years.

Decanted 2 hours, drunk over the following 2 hours. Opens with classic bordeaux nose with clearly lead pencil/cigar Box aromas. Nose is fascinating and complex, with some maturity. Palate fails to deliver up to expectations from the nose, but still is enjoyable. I would save these 3-5 more years because structure is still very much present. 18 points for the nose, 16.5 for the palate today for 17+ total.
