1998 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Elegant, spicy, tobacco, cranberry, and red cherry characteristics emerge from this finesse-styled, sweet, flavorful, medium-bodied wine. Already delicious as well as complex, it is best consumed over the next decade.
Plenty of cherry, tobacco and mineral aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after 2004. 3,330 cases made. –JS
This wine is delicious now after decanting one hour. Mineral notes and earthy flavors. Deep color and fine texture on the palate. I am not big fan of left bank 1998s but this wine is a great value.-Clyde Beffa
