(1998 Vintage) The wine has a medium intensity garnet hue. Notes of earth, vanilla and slightly toasted oak complement strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. The wine has a soft entry and medium body with balanced acidity and tannins. Along with strawberry, earth, toasted oak and vanilla flavors already present on the nose, the wine has a cherry nuance and finish.The wine can be drunk now but will further evolve over the next 3 to 5 years. A bottle cellared over 5 years should always be decanted. Enjoy!
