Good medium ruby. Spicy aromas of blackberry and minerals. Juicy and penetrating, with lively flavors of black fruits, licorice and game. Less dense and silky than the '99 or '00, and perhaps more classic in its precision. Finishes with firm tannins, and subtle, lingering finishing flavors. Graves

Harvest date 24 Sep-5 Oct; yield 59.5 hl/ha; vineyard area 55.98 haVery vibrant deep crimson. Sweet, rather beguiling nose - aromatically intense. Very gentle palate with real delicacy and life. Neat finish. Great balance. A real success for this vintage.

A deep ruby/purple color combines with a sweet nose of minerals, blackberries, and cassis in this nicely-textured, medium-bodied 1998. It possesses excellent concentration, firm tannin, and admirable purity as well as balance. Like many wines from this estate, it requires patience, but will ultimately behave like a blue chip classified growth.
