Chamonard 1998 Morgon Le Clos de Lys
Overshadowed by the lovely 1999s, '98 is not a vintage we remember, but in fact, despite frost and uneven spring weather, most of the summer was warm and sunny and the vintage was quite good. We're very happy to have this excellent 14+ year-old wine from Domaine Chamonard. The aromas are lovely, subtle and earthy with the lightest of red fruits, citrus, sous-bois and floral notes with secondary mushroom, musk and smoke. Very pretty. This continues on the palate which is light and velvety, with good acidity, really quite delicious. The finish tightens a bit with some dry tannin and dark leathery notes but the aromatics and mid-palate are so lovely, we're not complaining and neither will you....NOTE: 6 bottle limit per customer, please!
