1998 Jean-Louis Chave Hermitage Rouge (93+ Points RP). No Reserve

"This is a model estate for a family owned vineyard - a great family,a great domaine,a great terroir,and great wines". "In the topflight 1998 vintage (reminiscent of 1995 and 1989) there are two cuvees,both of which were bottled without filtration.The 1998 Chave Hermitage rouge is a tannic,backward,large-scaled,dense ruby/purple-colored wine with high tannin,sensational extract,and formidable power and length.It needs 5-10 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030". (93+ Points). Above extracts taken from Robert Parker's book "Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide. Sixth Edition". The most recent tasting note on Cellartracker on the 1998 Chave Hermitage:- "Decanted and left in cellar for approx. 2 hours. A generous bouquet was evident upon popping the cork. Deep crimson color and slight bricking at the rim. Still a bit reticent at the 2 hr mark when we first sampled, but opened up beautifully over the next hour, displaying a sappy, rich texture, notable but well managed tannic spine, balancing lift and beautiful fruit underpinning strong secondary characteristics of polished leather, savory spice and a mineral streaked mid-palate. It continued to improve though the hour it was consumed. Next bottle will give 3+ hrs of air prior to drinking". (94 Points). Cellartracker. (6/5/2018).

1989 Chateau Latour (94 Points WS) Pauillac Premier Grand Cru Classe.

"This is so decadent and exciting on the nose,with very ripe fruit,tobacco,meat and cedar.Full-bodied,offering amazing raspberry fruit in the core of the palate.Ultrapolished,velvety tannins wonderfully coat every inch of your palate.This will age for years ahead,but it's so lovely now.Much better than many people think". (94 Points). James Suckling (The Wine Spectator. '89/'99 Bordeaux blind Retrospective. 2009). "Very rich,dark crimson core that is ruby at the rim.A youthful colour.The nose is ripe and meaty with a mass of dusty,olive and blackcurrant fruit.A nicely vegetal quality.Palate is quite full and the fruit is ripe with rich tannins that are sweet and deep.There is an edge of plum-skin bitterness and acidity that gives lovely balance.A nice sense of roundness too with sweet vanillin oak showing up in a long,harmonious finish.Lovely wine". Tom Cannavan's 2004. "The wine's depth and colour at this stage could well be imagined;its nose developing very good fruit and flesh,as did the palate.Full-bodied with 100% new oak providing a very spicy aftertaste.Most recently:fabulous cedar and Cabernet aroma;lovely fruit and components.Rarely the easiest of red Bordeaux to get to grips with at an early stage.It holds great promise. Drink 2005-2030". (*****). Michael Broadbent. (The Great Vintage Wine Book Two). La Revue du Vin de France awarded this wine 19/20 Points. The bottle has a US strip label.
