    Massive and thick, almost too thick. Honey, cream, butterscotch and lemon curd character on the nose and palate. Full and oily, with a thick mouthfeel and lots of overripe fruit. Fat is a word that comes to mind -- '88/'98 Bordeaux retrospective (2008). Drink now.

    Superripe aromas of apricot, peach and honeysuckle; very semillon. Thick and ripe, but with racy acidity giving it terrific vivacity. Fresh peach and apple flavors. Very rich but very dry on the long aftertaste.

    Tangy and dense and introvert and, most unusually in this line-up, this wine tastes as though it still has quite a bit to give. Smoky and sweet and pungent and exciting. This seems at its ideal stage of evolution cf the 1993. Great, racy stuff.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    The 1998 Laville-Haut-Brion is a sensationally powerful wine with the texture of a grand cru Burgundy and the complexity afforded by the Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend.
