"A classic Pomerol, the 1998 boasts a superb, complex bouquet of mocha fudge, vanilla, black cherries, roasted coffee, smoke, and berries. The dazzlingly explosive aromatic display is followed by a creamy-textured, medium to full-bodied, beautifully-layered wine with no hard edges. A supple texture leads to a finish with notes of caramel and spice that lingers for over 40 seconds. This is a gorgeous, complex Pomerol. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, (04/22/2003, Issue 146), Rating: 93. Drink: 2009-2020.
