Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste, 1998

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe

The 1998 Grand Puy Lacoste is pure crème de cassis, licorice and spice are all present in this wine from Xavier Borie. Medium to full-bodied and ripe, with sweet tannin and a nicely textured mouthfeel, this is a beauty that should continue to drink well for another 15 or so years.

Chateau Latour, 1998

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

The 1998 Chateau Latour is a refined, elegant offering with a dark ruby colour, sweet cassis fruit, attractive fat, surprisingly soft tannin, and a good finish. There is firmness and muscle in the background, but this is not an enormous or powerful Latour. However, it is very pure, with the vineyard's mineral/black fruit character presented in a medium-weight format.

Chateau Milens, 1998

St Emilion Grand Cru

Rich and opulent nose full of toasty, spicy, jammy notes. On the palate the style is open and lush with a softly textured and polished feel although the tannins are surprisingly firm for a wine made by the man from Valandraud. The finish is slightly unbalanced costing the palate some of its effortless immediacy, good finish and great value.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1998

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

*** 96 Parker Points ***

Like many of its peers, the 1998 Mouton has filled out spectacularly. Now in the bottle, this opaque black/purple-colored offering has increased in stature, richness, and size. A blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Cabernet Franc (57% of the production was utilized), it is an extremely powerful, super-concentrated wine offering notes of roasted espresso, creme de cassis, smoke, new saddle leather, graphite, and licorice. It is massive, with awesome concentration, mouth-searing tannin levels, and a saturated flavor profile that grips the mouth with considerable intensity.

Chateau Pichon-Longueville, Baron, 1998

Pauillac 2eme Cru Classe

The 1998 Pichon-Longueville Baron is a complex, evolved, mature, cedar, spice box, and black currant aromas emerge from this ruby/garnet-colored offering. Soft, with sweet tannin, spicy oak, and ripe fruit, this is an open-knit, attractive Pauillac to enjoy now and over the next few years.

Chateau Rauzan-Segla, 1998

Margaux 2me Cru Classe

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Ruby-red. Penetrating, minerally aromas of raspberry, redcurrant and cedary oak. Denser and more structured than the '99; with its firmer acidity, this is more classic claret. Very rich, sharply delineated wine that will require at least seven or eight years of bottle aging. (ST) (5/2001)

90 points Wine Spectator
Dark colour, with a ripe blackberry character and hints of minerals. Medium- to full-bodied, with lovely, integrated tannins and velvety, round mouthfeel. Lovely now. (JS, Web-2009)

Chateau Troplong Mondot, 1998

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe.

*** 93 Points - Robert Parker ***

A fabulous effort, this sleeper of the vintage may turn out to be the finest Troplong-Mondot since the 1990. The black/purple-colored 1998 exhibits floral, blueberry, blackberry, licorice, vanillin, and truffle-like aromas (or is it charcoal/graphite?). Dense, full-bodied, and pure, yet extremely fresh and elegant, this beautifully focused wine is ready for drinking now but will hold for a few more years.
Impressive!

Chateauneuf du Pape, 1998

Chateau de Beaucastel Pierre Perrin

*** 93/100 - Robert Parker ***

"The atypically Grenache-dominated 1998 Chateauneuf du Pape is fully mature and gives up tons of kirsch, garrigue, licorice and a touch of gaminess in its full-bodied, layered and ripe personality. More rounded and sexy than most vintages, it has no hard edges, plenty of mid-palate depth and a great finish. I see no reason to delay gratification, but it will certainly hold for 5-10 years."
Wine Advocate, Jeb Dennuck - 2015

*** 18/20 Jancis Robertson ***
Scented and fresh, still showing some red fruit and a touch of vanilla. Elegant and silky. Lingers with flavours of thyme and a hint of bitter chocolate.

Dow's Port, 1998

Quinta da Senhora de Ribeira Vintage port

Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira is set in the remote, hot and dry Douro Superior and commands a magnificent north bank position, overlooking a broad sweep of the Douro, directly opposite another Symington family-owned vineyard: Quinta do Vesuvio. The quinta was built close to an ancient and strategic river crossing, guarded by two 12th century hilltop castles, either side of the Douro. A small chapel dedicated to the ‘Lady of the River’ (literally: Senhora da Ribeira) has stood here for centuries and gave the quinta its name. Travellers would make a pause to pray for a safe river passage and onward journey.

Fonseca Port, 1998

Guimaraens Vintage Port

In the early 1950s, the rising demand for vintage Ports led Fonseca Guimaraens to create a second vintage Port under the ""Guimaraens"" label in undeclared years.

There is a considerably smaller blend of Guimaraens Vintage produced than of Fonseca Vintage Porto, and these non-classic wines, for their quality and rarity, offer an exceptional value. True to the Fonseca style, Guimaraens Vintage Ports are intensely rich and concentrated, with a voluptuous femininity and sublime, velvety texture. Beautifully structured and perfectly balanced, they show the superb marriage of power and breed for which the house of Fonseca Guimaraens is renowned.

Kopke Port, 1998

Colheita Port

History and exclusivity are two of the words that best describe Kopke, a brand synonymous with prestige. Kopke existed even before there was a demarcated Region of the Douro. Established in 1638, the oldest Port wine house built an impeccable reputation based on the highest quality. A leader in the production of Port Tawny Colheita wines, including white port, Kopke has a remarkable and highly awarded range of special category Ports.

Presented in the port house's unmistakable and unique hand-painted bottle, this 1998 Kopke Tawny Colheita is elegant and complex. An amalgamation of rich flavours is marked by the presence of dried fruits, with a burst of freshness in red cherries enhanced by an exuberant note of spice.

Laphoraig, 1998

12 Year old Single Malt The Whisky Castle Collection no 12.

A 12 year old Laphroaig distilled in 1998, matured in sherry butt #80017 and bottled in 2011 for Whisky Castle Ltd.

Laphroaig distillery is an Islay single malt Scotch whisky distillery. It is named for the area of land at the head of Loch Laphroaig on the south coast of the Isle of Islay. The meaning of the toponym is unknown, but a commonly suggested etymology includes the elements "lag" (Gaelic: hollow), "breid" (Norse: broad) and "vik" (Norse: bay), implying an original Gaelic form something like "Lag Bhròdhaig" (the hollow of Broadbay). The name may be related to a placename on the east coast of Islay, "Pròaig", again suggested as meaning "broad bay".

Morellino di Scansano, 1998

New

Fratelli Mantellassi

This style of Sangiovese differs from its northern brethren due to the ripeness levels it can achieve in southern Tuscany. The result is a rounder and more savory style of wine. Regulations stipulate that at least 85% of the wine must be made from this variety, with the rest coming from other permitted Tuscan red grapes. Unlike many DOCGs, this wine does not require ageing and can be released in the March after the harvest, less than eight months later; logically, this wine is characterized by lively freshness and crisp character. Other traits come in the form of cherry, pomegranate, plum, leather, cedar and spice notes.

Veuve Clicquot, 1998

Ponsardin La Grand Dame Brut

The house’s 1998 La Grande Dame reveals notable clarity and precision. This focused, poised wine emerges from the glass with well-articulated flowers, pears, smoke, crisp apples and minerals in a medium-bodied style. The wine appears to have enough freshness and sheer depth to support another decade or so of aging.

La Grand Dame represents a significant step up from the estate’s other wines. In 1998 La Grande Dame is 64% Pinot Noir (Ay, Verzenay, Verzy, Ambonnay and Bouzy) and 36% Chardonnay (Avize, Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger).

Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin is one of Champagne’s best known brands thanks to the success of its “yellow label” non-vintage wine and the tete de cuvee La Grande Dame.

Sandeman Port, 1997

Vau vintage 1997 (Half Bottles)

Vau Vintage 1997 is a Port with a deep, almost opaque, red color, with intense aromas of fresh red fruits, especially plum and strawberry.

The balance between the fruity taste and the softness of the tannins, provide a long and elegant finish.
A Port of exceptional quality and modern style that can be enjoyed young or after a few years of aging in bottle, developing rich and complex aromas over the years.

Chateau Margaux, 1997

Margaux 1er Grand Cru Classe

Reviews:
The best of the First Growth ‘97s... garnet/ruby core with ruby rim. The nose is exquisite with great delineation and purity with much more vigour that the other Firsts. Mint, blackberries, violets and blueberries all leap from the glass, oblivious to the fact that they stem from a poor vintage. The palate has a slightly voluptuous feel to it, rounded black fruits, raspberry, cassis, tobacco, graphite and a touch of Asian spice towads the finish. Sheer class. A superb success for Paul Pontallier in a difficult vintage. Drink now-2025. Tasted September 2006." Neil Martin, Wine Journal.

Chateau Potensac, 1997

Medoc

The Chateau Potensac 1997 has plenty of cassis, leaf and cedar to begin with. The wine is fresh and gains in the glass. The fruits have a ripe, creamy edge from the vintage but the wine remains savoury and true. It has ample structure beneath the flesh and is still drinking nicely. A beautiful mature older Medoc.

Chateau Certan-de-may, 1996

Pomerol

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Moderately saturated medium red. Somewhat riper aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, smoke, tar, tobacco and pepper, plus a hint of green coffee beans. More intensely flavored and vinous than the '97; in a rather fruity style but a wine of modest sweetness. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and more length than the '97, but still betrays a slight greenness. (ST) (5/1998)

Chateau Lafite Rothschild, 1996

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

***100 Parker Points***

The 1996 Lafite Rothschild was spectacularly powerful and rich, somewhat atypically intense and concentrated for Lafite. It is a gorgeous expression of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon from this great terroir. Remarkably, only 38% of the production made it into the 1996 Lafite, and it is a wine for the ages. Still an infant, it is capable of lasting another 50 or more years. 100 points.

The 1996 Chateau Marbuzet has a dark ruby colour. Iron, game and deep red fruits fill the nose with exciting aromas. Plump, seductive flavors cover the palate with a hit of '96 acidity on the finish keeping everything balanced and in proper order. A bit of lavender makes its way into things after being exposed to air for 60 minutes.
Perfect now.

Chateau Pavie Decesse, 1996

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe

This estate has been rejuvenated thanks to the inspired leadership of Gerard Perse and it has never produced better wines. The 1996 has quantities of redcurrant fruit in the nose, along with earth and spice. This is a pleasant wine that is in its prime now and so will gain no benefit from additional cellaring.

Chateau Sociando Mallet, 1996

Medoc

A 1996 wine from the region of Bordeaux.

Neal Martin writes of this wine... "Showing fabulously at the turn of the millennium where it displayed great depth and concentration. A more muted response when last tasted blind at Farr's horizontal. Much fresher on the nose with good fruit concentration. Blackberry, cedar, burnt toast, quite complex and well-defined. The palate is quite sweet with bitter cherry, raspberry and strawberry. Moderate tannins with a fleshy finish. Not bad at all. Tasted September 2006." Neal Martin Wine Journal
