A handsome looking specimen.

The '98 boasts the highest Parker score - 90/100 - for Carruades in the last century, so this is arguably (depending on your opinion of His Bobness) the best fully mature offering one can sample.

"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" 90/100 Parker, April 01
