(1998 Vintage) Clean precise wines - more firm than round. Very typical of the Haut Médoc at its very best. Intense, deep, lively color. Ripe tannins. Aromas of wild red fruits. Powerful with remarkable complexity.
Wine & Spirits(2005 Vintage) This large vineyard has build a following in the US market, with consistently good quality wine. And the rsquo;94 follows in the style of small-scale clarets, light, plummy and gentle, the chewy tannins bringing to mind a dinner of roast lamb. Thatrsquo;s how I used to enjoy Larose-Trintaudon, not so many years ago, when it cost $7.99. The only consolation in the current pricing is the fact that most California wines of this quality cost at least as much.
