Carruades de Lafite Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

Robert Parker scores this wine 90 points and writes: "This has become one of the finest second wines 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 color in addition to an excellent bouquet of black fruits, smoke, earth, and minerals, supple tannin, an excellent texture, and a long, fine finish. Anticipated maturity: now-2015."

This wine had a nice nose, good body and balance, well integrated, but a slight tart, greeness to it. I had a bottle of this 1998 about 7 years ago, and I remember it being outstanding. I'm not sure what happened, but I may need to encounter it once again.
