This Bordeaux wine value buying guide page is a list of the top 1998 Bordeaux wines in the market for the money today. These are the best Bordeaux wines from the vintage combining quality, character and price from every major Bordeaux appellation.

1998 Bordeaux is a special year. While every Bordeaux vintage offers unique characteristics. Some years favor the Cabernet Sauvignon based wines of the Medoc. Other vintages are perfect for Right and Left Bank wines. Yet again, different years can also favor the Merlot based wines of Pomerol and St. Emilion. 1998 Bordeaux is a Merlot year. Some successful wines were produced from the Left Bank and Pessac Leognan, but the starts of the vintage are Pomerol and St. Emilion.

The best 1998 Bordeaux wines are from the Right Bank. Tasting these wines on multiple occasions prove that in truth, they are not far from the quality reached in the 2000 Bordeaux vintage. They are not as flamboyant in style, and they lack the same profound level of concentration, but 1998 Bordeaux wines are sublime. I bought many of them for my own cellar and most 1998 Bordeaux are starting to drink well today.
