...an intense bouquet with hints of mint, coca and mocha, showing more Cabernet Franc character than recent bottles, with impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, quite fresh and vibrant with grainy tannins, good acidity and persistency with a meaty, savoury, Cabernet Franc driven finish. Very fine and it improves with time, with an edgy citrus finish and delicious dark chocolate/espresso decorating the aftertaste. I have had better bottles of the '98, but this is still a lovely Pomerol that should enter its plateau in the next couple of years. Neal Martin (eRobertParker.com)

Showing very developed for "only" being 17 years old. I blind-guessed this as a wine from the 70's and will need to taste it from another bottle before I make up my mind.

Site: Dark with a slightly cloudy body with a nice meniscus producing a graduated color scheme from the rim to the heart of the glass. Colors of deep dark burgundy to brickish garnet to a wide clear translucent brownish rim due to the age "1998". Nose: tar and smoke with overripe black fruits. Barnyard smells of wet old leather and horse. Tobacco, pipe old smoked leftover pipe tobacco. Palate: macerated, puréed dark fruit left to ripen. Cherry, cassis, cranberry, plums and blackberries. Acid: high+, still solid tannic acid and fruit acids. Finish: is long and lingering lasting. Defiantly a steak and potatoes wine. A dish with out too much complexity to take way from the flavors of the wine.
