Chateau Musar, Rouge, 1998
This is a Cinsault dominated wine eminates from a fairly cool vintage thus it is elegant with plenty of finesse. It has good depth on the palate with some developed notes of game and a good acidity. Although it is not a heavy wine, it has good staying power on the palate and will be very pleasing to Bordeaux drinkers and Lebasnese lovers alike.
Sauternes Gold Reserve, Filhot, 1998 (37.5cl)
A delicious, fully mature Sauternes from Chateau Filhot – relabelled as Gold Reserve. The unctuous sweetness of youth is settled into a light and elegant style. Full of dried fruit and marmalade flavours. There is a little orange pith dryness on the finish.
