The 1998 has turned out to be one of the vintage's superb Medocs. It boasts an opaque black/purple color as well as a classic Leoville Las Cases display of lead pencil, gorgeously pure black raspberries and cherries, smoke, and graphite. A broad yet focused entry on the palate reveals firm tannin, medium to full body, superb concentration and purity, as well as a totally symmetrical mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.

Good complexity of aromas and the palate is beginning to soften but there is still a good amount of power and body. The finish is long and carries the vintage nicely.

Here is something interesting. The oak is still omni present and the wine is not ready, but the fruit is just eking out. The tannins are really tasty. Nice balance. Wait a while though.

Wowwww just perfect to drink right now. A lot of pepper on the wine. All you can expect on a great Boudreaux. Can't get enough of this ! Very nice

I was concerned that this was too young and indeed it's absolutely best days are ahead of it but with plenty of air and a good decant it opened up very nicely and showed its class.
