1998 Domaine de Chevalier , 1998

Graves Pessac-Leogan
Special offer | Was 89.95 | Now £59

The Domaine de Chevalier is a consistently high performer. The 1998 vintage is no exception receiving excellent reviews and critical acclaim.
This is a classic, finesse-styled Graves. The 1998 Domaine de Chevalier reveals scorched earth, tobacco, and red currant aromas along with rich, elegant, savory flavors, sweet tannin, and better integrated oak than previous vintages have exhibited as well as sweet tannin, a lusty, plush mid-palate and finish, and beautifully sweet fruit that unfolds on the palate in a graceful manner.

1998 Quinta do Noval, 1998

Silval Vintage Port
Special Offer | Was £59.95 | Now £44.95

From the very good 1998 port vintage, the Silval from Quinta do Noval is our best seller. Now 20+ years of age, the port has mellowed to give complexity, poise and elegance. Pure aromatic nose is really fresh with lovely definition and great purity of sweet blackberry and raspberry fruit. The palate is fresh and supple with lovely pure summer pudding fruit and some nice spicy structure. Nicely defined. With flavours of spiced, raisiny fruit, damson and black treacle, it's fair to say it has aged well and has picked up a few tricks over the years. Noval Silval 1998 has never been more ready.

The vines are generally grown on limestone-rich marl soils. similar to the Tortonium soils of the Barolo and La Morra areas in Barolo. Similar to its more famous sibling Barolo, Barbaresco is made from 100% Nebbiolo and shares its cult status as one of the finest wines in the world.

Chateau Cissac, 1998

Medoc, Cru Bourgeois - damaged labels

Good colour, great legs and nose. Quite nice when opened. Perhaps a trace of liquorice and a hint of 'medicinal' character. After 3-4 hours - quite rich and aromatic with good cherry fruit and a touch of maraschino at the end. Tannins are soft and have integrated completely.

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 La Lagune, 1998

Haut Medoc, 3rd Growth Classification

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.
