    July 24, 2018 - We Coravin this wine as part of a wine tasting dinner, so naturally did not aerate, but it wasn't necessary. Tasted great, very much a right bank wine, with strong notes of dark fruits, blackberries and plumbs with a certain aroma of pine straws. it is definitely at its prime now, not sure if it will improve with additional cellaring.

    July 19, 2018 - This bottle was all prunes and raisins and clearly over the hill. Could just be a bad bottle, as Togni's wines usually have very long life. I have one bottle left and hope it lives up to its reputation.
    The wine looks brick colored. The legs are slow. There is moderate sediment in the bottle.

    June 23, 2018 - Deep dark brooding fruit would hint that this could not be a 1998 — let alone the vintage, but the age, too. Black cherry, coffee grounds, and a hint of mint on the nose, with long full-bodied mouthfeel showing pomegranate, plum, and subtle dried herb—youthful, but I don't think it will get better. Yum!
