Beautiful and subtle, with sweet berry, raisin and violet aromas that follow through to a full body, with polished and silky tannins and a clean finish. Balanced and focused. Starting to lose its coarse edge and turning to elegance. (JS, Web Only-2009)
Red-ruby. Spicy aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry and roast coffee; shows the exotic, candied-fruit character of some of the best '98 Pomerols. Very sweet and lush in the mouth, with complex floral and dark chocolate flavors and lovely vinosity. Finishes with lovely even tannins and terrific persistence. (ST)
Medium to deep garnet-brick in color, the 1998 La Gomerie opens with a wonderfully evocative nose of sandalwood, star anise, dusty soil and potpourri over a core of dried mulberries, plum preserves and kirsch with nuances of cast iron pan and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is settling into maturity with bags of elegance and finesse, sporting multilayered spice and dried flowers nuances with a fantastic fruit core—all framed by beautifully plush tannins and seamless freshness—finishing on a lingering aniseed note. It is in such a delicious sweet spot, although it should cellar a further 10-12 years easily. (LPB)
