1998 Clos du L"oratoire - TheEngineer - 11-04-2012 10:11 PM

We had a wine dinner in prep for an up coming auction. The auction house and the company at dinner were outstanding. The restaurant (Toque) was also outstanding, the food done incredibly well. I'm posting on the wines that were at the tasting and some that people brought to the event to share. Regardless of whether I thought the wine was good or not, I appreciated the opportunity to taste them and learn from them

1998 Clos du L'Oratoire - My bottle ...yes I was chicken... a bit of a
safe choice as well. But this one was on full song, full bodied,
deep, tea, black fruit, still very primal, very long finish. Lovely
wine and drinking very well but again no rush. The 95 looked much
more evolved than this bottle.
