ABOUT THE WINE
Classified as a 2eme cru classe, the largest of the 3 Leoville estates and with no doubt the leading one. This St Julien 97 hectares of vineyards with the main plot being surrounded by a wall are superbly sited. The wine predominantly cabernet sauvignon (65%) is matured in oak barriques (80% new) for 18 months. The wine is fermented at a lower temperature than average making it very aromatic and rich wine in his youth developing to a more powerful and concentrated wine with age.

ABOUT THE VINTAGE
A very good vintage in Pomerol and St Emilion. Also excellent wines have been made in Pessac-Leognan. The wines are not inexpensive but in years to come we are sure you will be well pleased with your investment. Because the Medoc home of the most famous Chateaux tends to set the price for red Bordeaux 1998s are not as expensive as the 2000 and are much closer to maturity.
