Chateau Le Pape 1998 Pessac Leognan

Feb 2013. A great find from the Bordeaux region. Well-made, balanced wine with good age in the mid quality range, with very interesting flavours and aromas.

Deep ruby colour tinged with amber. Complex bouquet with leather and tobacco - St Bruno Flake. Slight but definite liqourice. Palate has light tanins and fading fruit but with complexity and good length.
