Tasted at the La Conseillante vertical at Chez Bruce. The first bottle is oxidized, the second better with an intense bouquet with hints of mint, coca and mocha, showing more Cabernet Franc character than recent bottles, with impressive delineation. The palate is medium-bodied, quite fresh and vibrant with grainy tannins, good acidity and persistency with a meaty, savoury, Cabernet Franc driven finish. Very fine and it improves with time, with an edgy citrus finish and delicious dark chocolate/espresso decorating the aftertaste. I have had better bottles of the '98, but this is still a lovely Pomerol that should enter its plateau in the next couple of years. Tasted December 2010.
Nice deep Plum, still youthfull, this has blossomed on the nose with dark plummy fruit, plenty of pepper and tapenade, grilled and heady. The palate is well proportionned with plenty of chewy fruit, good zip and dusty tannins, now mostly integrated. This is just a point, a lovely emotive Claret with plenty of finesse as expected from this great property. Medium length, very nice balance. Will drink well for another 5 years or so. Now-2020+
