As always, great notes. I need to get together a wine dinner this summer. What were you eating with the wines? Did you have something different with each flight or were the wines drunk in the absence of food? Just curious.

My experiences have been just the opposite (though I'll admit, I haven't really tasted many Chapelles). Maybe it's the 98 vintage: I've found many 98s to be really plush and warm fruited and opulent? Or is this one of the more traditional T-Ls (yes, they make the occasional wine which isn't over oaked or spoofy)?
I'm also a fan of 2001 CdPs. I'm glad your Pegau was open - I tasted it a year or so back and thought it was closing up.
