  • What the experts say...

    " Etonnament souple et épanoui, le 1998 ne présente pas la puissance ni les tannins caractéristiques du millésime. Rubis foncé de robe, avec des arômes ronds et fruités (en particuliers les épices et la cerise), il se révèle assez massif." Source : R. Parker (03/01)
