  • What the experts say...

    " Arborant un superbe rubis-pourpre foncé, le 1998 se caractérise par des notes de terre fraîchement remuée, de fumé, de cerise noire et de groseille, typiques de son appellation. Moyennement corsé, merveilleusement riche et parfumé, ce Graves classique et complexe révèle aussi des tannins doux et une acidité magnifiquement fondue." Source : R. Parker (03/02)
