Chateau Cantenac Brown Grand Cru Classe 1998

This wine confirmed to me that I am not drinking enough Margaux, though I can use the "hard to find in Australia" excuse.  A classic aroma of black currants, elegant fruit and cigar box.  A palate with 10 seconds plus of length and blackcurrants.  Not a blockbuster, but very enjoyable drinking.  Drink over the next 5 years or so.  91 points.
