International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Superb dark ruby. Deeply pitched aromas of black raspberry, cassis and smoke. Lush, layered and sweet; already shows compelling inner-mouth flavor, surprising in light of the 3.6 pH, which is lower than normal for this wine. Still, the acids are harmonious and ripe. Longer and sweeter on the back end than the '97. Tannins are dense and mouthcoating but thoroughly ripe.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 122

This is one of St.-Emilion's most impressively constituted and expressive wines. From its saturated purple color, to its soaring aromatics (pain grille, jammy black fruits, chocolate, roasted coffee, and smoke), this full-bodied, meaty, chewy, powerful wine is loaded with extract, sweet tannin for the vintage, and possesses a layered, multidimensional finish. It should continue to improve for a decade, and drink well for 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Just coming around, with tobacco, vanilla, berry and earth aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective.

Decanted for two hours. Just now entering its drinking window. Rather tight and tannic. Plums; vegetal; fine, velvety tannins; a bit of funk on the nose, but not offensive. A more "feminine" style. Good cut - paired well with rib roast. Will continue to age for at least 10 years.
