1998 Ch. La Grave a Pomerol

A deep ruby colour wine with a paler rime and legs. It has rather light intensity aromas of black cherry, vanilla, smoke, earthy and some vegetal notes. On palate, it is dry with medium acidity, medium alcohol and medium tannin which is surprisingly slightly stalky. Medium intensity flavours of earth, blackberries, smoke with a relatively lighter body, a bit hollow in mouth. Medium length with earthy finish. (88)
