Wonderful nose of very mature dark red fruits and dried berries and flowers. But kind of fell flat on palate though good finish.

98 CdP! Very closed off at first, but definitely opened up with tome, as you’d expect. Pretty earthy and tannins integrated well, but was expecting more complexity given the age.

The 1998 vintage. Impressive nose with pepper twinge. Overall taste was good but a little flat on the finish.

I rated this 9.2. The 1998 is drinking beautifully now. Mature but nice balance lovely wine.
