IWC
87-90

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 84

Red-ruby. Expressive, liqueur-like aromas of kirsch, spicy oak and fresh herbs. Supple, sweet and plump in the mouth; not especially dense but has a firm structural underpinning. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and subtle, lingering black raspberry flavor. This should be the best Conseillante since the '95.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

An evolved dark plum/garnet color is followed by captivating, sexy, raspberry, soy, Asian spice, kirsch liqueur, and toasty vanillin aromas. While not a blockbuster, this opulently-textured, medium-bodied effort is a model of elegance, harmony, finesse, and complexity. This wine's low acidity as well as wonderfully ripe fruit invite immediate consumption; it should last for 12-15 years.

Textbook Pomerol. Well-crafted, with tobacco, berry and cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish.

Moderate ruby red colored wine with lots of thick clear legs. A soaring nose of herbs, red fruits, vanilla, and toast. High well integrated acids and moderate tannins lead to a moderately fruity with herb shadings finish. Should be better considering the quality of the vintage.
