Another sensational wine was the 1998 Hermitage les Bessards, which was poured from magnum.

Another sensational wine was the 1998 Hermitage les Bessards, which was poured from magnum. Showing a touch of maturity in its rich, full-bodied and concentrated style, it offers lots of dusty minerality, cured meats, smoked earth and mulled spices to go with a core of currant and cassis-like fruit. Balanced, layered and elegant, yet certainly not lacking in depth or density, it's drinking beautifully today but will hold nicely for another 15-20 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Bright ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black- and redcurrant black licorice and spices. Very intensely flavored and firm-edged with dark berry flavors complicated by herbal and peppery notes. Long gripping finish features... Bright ruby-red. Sappy aromas of black- and redcurrant black licorice and spices. Very intensely flavored and firm-edged with dark berry flavors complicated by herbal and peppery notes. Long gripping finish features slightly tough tannins. Very much in the more austere style of the vintage: the '99 is denser and sweeter.
