Red fruit then purple fruit emerge through the midpalate. Vibrant, with plenty going on. Attractive.

Really good. Grippy. Black profile but a distinct freshness too. Certainly this is a delicious and sophisticated wine.

Much better and less evolved than the bottle of this I had a few nights ago.

Needs a little decanting but otherwise it's great. Aged to perfection! 80% merlot 20% cab franc

The ‘98 vintage was rated as very good for right bank.
Deep ruby.
Interesting pronounced developed nose of blackberry, plum sauce, dark cherry, graphite, tar, violet, cedar, dark chocolate.
The palate has rich and concentrated earthy flavors, dry, med+ lively acidity, med+ ripe tannins, med alcohol, pronounced intensity.
Long coffee and tar kick finish.
Very good grand cru classe, very enjoyable, still shining with great fruit in there, drink now, at zenith, suitable for further aging. Cork was fine!
