1998 Montviel, Pomerol

SKU #1028969

90 points Wine Spectator: "A baby Pomerol with excellent potential. Impressive aromas of smoke, meat and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2006." (01/01) According to Robert Parker: "If the 1998 Montviel continues to perform as it did in March, it will be a candidate for a sleeper of the vintage. Dark ruby/purple-colored, with a sweet blackberry and cherry liqueur-scented nose with licorice and toast in the background, this is a long, deep, medium to full-bodied Pomerol with moderately aggressive tannin. Large-scaled and powerful, it will age well for 10-15 years." (04/99)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
