1998 typical of wine from pure flinty soil (rarely made into wine only in Sancerre) very pronounced flinty flavour, very dry and metallic, may age very well. Fresh since from a young vine. Acidity still rather high. The wine becomes rounded by ageing, and white flinty wines are very suitable for ageing.
