Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 122

I tasted this wine three times in January, rating it 88, 89, and 90 with similar tasting notes. The wine is close to being outstanding, exhibiting a saturated dark ruby color, and excellent aromatics, consisting of black fruits intermixed with licorice, dried herbs, and roasted meat smells. It is full, with impressive extract, a fleshy texture, low acidity, excellent purity, and a long, deep, chewy finish. This 1996 will be drinkable at a young age, yet keep for 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling Issue: Web

Lots of blackberry, licorice and light tar aromas. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long finish. This needs time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective.

floober Trust Rating: 100 Tasted On: 12/01/2009 Drink Dates: 2009-2020

colour: light garnet with a lightly tawny rim. nose: coffee bean. dusty oak. dark cherry. mature but not old. taste: this is a lovely fully mature medium to full bodied bordeaux. cherry flavours and autumnal fruit flavours to the fore. still quite tannic this is a wine that will charm you rather than blow you away with intensity. a little bit one dimensional but still very pleasant.currently in its drinking window it will not improve much further in bottle so may as well drink up now!
