Ferrand Lartigue 1998
Tasting Notes and Scores
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7
A highly regarded garage operation, Ferrand-Lartigue's 1998 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color as well as a tight but promising, internationally-styled bouquet of new oak, black fruits, and saddle leather. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with excellent purity, and clean, rich, concentrated flavors. Critics might argue that it is too "international," but it is an outstanding effort. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.
