  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

    One of the greatest wines of the '96 red Burgundy vintage. Magnificent and multilayered, this full-bodied grand cru delivers mind-boggling complexity, marrying ripe plum, licorice and blackberry character with--and this is the beauty of it--masses of terroir-driven mineral, iron and wet earth. Delicious now, but has the stuffing to last.

    The 1996 Musigny from Jacques Prieur must represent one of their finest wines that decade, and it has reached a perfect equilibrium almost 20 years on. Deep in color, it has a luscious mulberry, raspberry preserve and undergrowth scented bouquet that is beautifully defined, with hints of lavender emerging with continued aeration. The palate has plenty of sweetness, fine tannin and impressive depth. What is most entrancing is the purity in evidence here, and the the manner in which it just winds down towards an elegant finish. Pierre Rovani enthused about this Musigny upon release; I am inclined to agree with him.
