Tasting Notes

The 1998 Margaux is taking on a character reminiscent of the 1988 vintage. The colour is dense ruby/purple.The wine is tannic and austere, but elegant, with notes of asphalt,blackberries, acacia flowers, and sweet, toasty oak.Subtle, rich, nicely textured, and medium bodied, it is built for the long haul.Anticipated maturity:2008-2030
