  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 87

    Aromas of green olive and berries follow though to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Berry, tobacco and light chocolate aftertaste.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

    Redcurrant, minerals and spice on the nose. Fresh and juicy in the mouth, with cooler, rather muscular flavors of kirsch, minerals, mint and shoe polish. Quite tight today, and not yet showing much fat or personality, but has the structure and guts to develop in bottle. Finishes firmly tannic.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

    This property has come of age with the acquisition of Le Gay's old vine parcel. It is now consistently one of the finest wines of the appellation, and clearly merits is famous name. The 1996 may deserve an outstanding score with a year or two of bottle age. It boasts an impressively saturated ruby/purple color, as well as a pure, sweet nose of cherries, plum liqueur, spicy oak, and floral scents. The wine possesses excellent depth, medium body, superb purity, and an overall elegant personality offering a combination of power and finesse.
