1998 wine: This year favoured the merlot grape leading to a glorious vintage in Pomerol and St Emillion. This is undoubtedly the greatest vintage for Merlot-dominated wines since 1990 and the quality of the St-Emilions and Pomerols is outstanding being powerful and tannic. The Médoc wines were initially under-rated, but properties with the finest terroirs have produced some excellent high-quality wines that are now showing tremendous promise.
1998 port: Not generally declared as a vintage. A small crop produced some good and powerful Quinta Vintage Ports.
1998 vintage favored merlot dominated Bordeaux wines and this is a nice example.
Deep ruby red, with just browner tinges on the edges. Truffley nose, followed by earthy blackcurrant on the palate, with hints of vanilla and oak on the finish.
