Montrose 1998, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot from St. Estephe, Bordeaux

"Dark red. Lively. Good intensity. Young. Brilliant. Clean. Average color intensity. Fruity. Fine touches of caramel and licorice. Pure and fine. More powerful. More saline. Soft entry on the palate, very fruity, rounded and savory, developed, medium to full-bodied. The wine evolves toward juicy notes, always close to the fruit and melting in the mouth, with savor and power. It leaves in the finish a beautiful note of ripe fruit with no hard tannins, even if they are present; they are very palate-coating. Beautifully fine wine." 92 points Jean-Marc Quarin

Pavie Decesse 1998, 0.75L
from St. Emilion, Bordeaux

"The 1998 Pavie Decesse is medium to deep garnet-brick in color and explodes with fabulous plum pudding, prunes, blackberry preserves and blueberry pie notes with hints of smoked meats, garrigue, dusty soil, cast iron pan and star anise with dried roses and cinnamon stick wafts. Full-bodied, concentrated and packed with rich exotic spice and black fruit preserves layers, it has loads of mineral and meat sparks and a very, very long, layered finish. Incredible!" Wine Advocate 96 Points

"What glorious aroma. It's so clean and focused, with crushed raspberry and blackberry on the nose and hints of oak barrels. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of fruit. Big and powerful and very young. Give it time; it's getting better and better." Wine Spectator 93 Points
