International Wine CellarRating: 92(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 96, May/June 2001. Medium ruby. Spicy, highly aromatic nose combines currant, lead pencil, licorice, minerals and roasted nuts. Dense, spicy and penetrating, with lovely clarity of fruit and considerable power. Quite suave and stylish. Finishes very long, with firm tannins that are quite fine for the year. "We'll prefer the '99 for the first ten years, but afterwards this '98 may be better," notes Jean-Hubert Delon.
Wine AdvocateRating: 93/100 - As reviewed by The Wine Advocate in Issue 134.
