Chateau Cos d'Estournel, 1998

St Estephe, 2nd Growth Classification

*** 88 Points - Robert Parker ***

The nose is quite smoky and dusty, with a touch of green pepper. Very masculine, as is the palate that is foursquare, with dusty tannins, cigar box and blackberry leaf. It is very Saint Estephe with its earthy finish.

"Bottled in April, 2000, this elegant, stylish, graceful wine is an attractive, dark ruby/purple-colored effort with subtle notes of sweet oak, licorice, herbs, and black fruits. While not massive, it is medium-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin. Forty-eight percent of the production was utilized in this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot.

Chateau d'Armailhac, 1998

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification

An outstanding Pauillac from an estate that is on the rise. Tasting note by Robert Parker: "This is another Medoc 1998 that is revealing more mid palate, flesh, concentration, and sweeter tannin after bottling than it did during its elevage.This black/purple coloured claret exhibits sweet aromas of liquorice, incense, Asian spices, cedar, plums and black currents. Full bodied and sweet on the entry, with good acidity, definition, and ripe tannin. ." Bordeaux 6th Ed. Rating 89/100 (Excellent)

This is a very fine La Lagune. A deep garnet core with tawny rim, the nose straightlaced with cedar, smoke, a touch of cranberry and a little cracked black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied, dry and solid, firm and stoic. Good weight on the finish, and a lingering tobacco aftertaste. Drinking now.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1998

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

***98 Parker Points***

In a less than perfect Medoc vintage, the 1998 Chateau Lafite has been spectacular since birth, putting on more weight and flesh over the last year. This opaque purple-coloured 1998 is close to perfection. The spectacular nose of lead pencil, smokey, mineral, and black currant fruit soars majestically from the glass. The wine is elegant yet profoundly rich, revealing the essence of Lafite's character. The tannin is sweet, and the wine is spectacularly layered yet never heavy. The finish is sweet, super-rich, yet impeccably balanced and long (50+ seconds).

Chateau Latour , 1998

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

Many regard Latour as the greatest of Bordeaux's Premier Crus. The 1998 Chateau Latour is a refined, elegant offering with a dark ruby colour, sweet cassis fruit, attractive fat, surprisingly soft tannin, and a good finish. There is firmness and muscle in the background, but this is not an enormous or powerful Latour. However, it is very pure, with the vineyard's mineral/black fruit character presented in a medium-weight format.
