Margaux 1998

Chateau Margaux

19 years

The 1998 Margaux's color is a dense ruby/purple. The wine is tannic and austere, but elegant, with notes of asphalt, blackberries, acacia flowers, and sweet, toasty oak. Subtle, rich, nicely-textured, and medium-bodied, it is built for the long haul. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2030. *** Performing well, the 1998 is sweeter and fatter than when tasted last year. An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by a distinctive nose of melted licorice infused with cassis and toasty new oak. The wine is medium to full-bodied with grip, structure, and moderate tannin, but the tannin seems to have been digested by the wine's sweet, concentrated fruit. Long, pure, and both feminine and powerful, this 1998 will be at its peak between 2008-2025.
