This has become one of the finest second wines ever produced. The 1998 (a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 4.5% Cabernet Franc, and 1.5% Petit Verdot) is an outstanding effort. While very Lafite-like (although more supple and forward), it exhibits a dense ruby/purple colour in addition to an excellent bouquet of black fruits, smoke, earth, minerals, supple tannin, an excellent texture and a long, fine finish. Anticipated maturity: Drink NOW. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2015. 90 points Robert Parker.
