International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Good medium-dark red. Vinous aromas of redcurrant, tobacco and smoky, nutty oak. Silky but penetrating in the mouth; an elegantly styled wine with good extract and a light gamey nuance. Finishes with firm but fine tannins and very good persistence. This and the '95 will make a fascinating pair of vintages to follow: the '95 is denser and more merlot-dominated, while this is downright suave.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Decadent and rich, with wild mushrooms, plum and hints of citrus fruit. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Complex, with toasted oak, coffee and ripe fruit. It goes on and on. Wonderful. Big surprise. Get it. One of the best Right Bank wines in 1996.
