Good levels, labels and colour. This is a fabulous Mouton! Now really starting to open up showing a spicy, exotic wine with a good future.
Informationen zum Jahrgang
Having tasted about 100 wines in 1998 I admit to having had my doubts about this vintage as a whole, as I felt that many wines were too tannic and lean to ever come around. But over the last years more and more wines are coming out of their shells and showing a lovely, classic Bordeaux style. These are Bordeaux wines with structure, acidity, tannin and good ripe fruit that give joy now and will do so for many years to come. The prices appear a bargain considering the present en-primeur prices. The three great wines, Mouton Rothschild, Haut Brion and Latour all cost less than what you now have to pay for even weak vintages en-primeur!!!
