International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Medium red. Complex aromas of currant, tobacco and smoke. Dry-edged in the manner of the vintage, but vinous and precise, with subdued sweetness and solid structure. Finishes with firm but rather sweet tannins and very good length. A classic, elegant style of Smith Haut Lafitte.

Jancis Robinson Author: Jancis Robinson

Notably deep colour. Lovely nose – full and opulent. Burnt edge but very savoury and appetising. Very dramatic. A bit dry finish. Gouleyant.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A beautiful wine of symmetry, finesse, and elegance, this deep ruby/purple-colored offering reveals classic aromas of black currants, new wood, and scorched earth. This pure, medium-bodied, restrained, measured, graceful 1998 offers impressive overall symmetry as well as well-integrated tannin.

Wine Spectator

This young Bordeaux shows intense aromas of wet earth, stone and berries. It's full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Very well made indeed, and much better than when tasted from barrel. 9,165 cases made.
