  • International Wine Cellar
    (1998 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 96, May/June 2001. Full ruby. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, shoe polish and bitter chocolate. Concentrated and ripe but a bit tough in the mouth; in a distinctly dryer style than the '99. Flavors dominated by cassis and licorice. Finishes with rugged tannins. Built to age. There actually about 14.5% alcohol here, according to winemaker Philippe Melka.
