Wine Advocate Review:
A classic, this 1998 combines elegance with lovely textured, rich flavors of black cherries and currants, resulting in a quintessential Bordeaux that is unlike any other wine produced in the world. The wine possesses an ethereal lightness, layers of fruit, and a diaphanous framework. More nuances appear with each sip. Tasters will find notes of blackberries, plums, currants, tar, spice box, and minerals. A beautifully etched wine, it will be at its finest between 2003 to 2017.

Vinous Review:
Medium rubyred. Penetrating, rather Burgundian aromas of spicy dark berries, bitter chocolate and violet. Supple on entry, then quite firm in the middle, with sappy, intense berry fruitiness supported by solid acids. Finishes long and spicy, firmly tannic but not dry. Still quite youthful but already very attractive. A modern style of Margaux, but still with clear Margaux character.
