Wine Spectator | Rating: 93A seductive Pinot from start to finish. Ultrarich, full-bodied, plummy style of Burgundy, with a touch of petrol along with the pure wild berry, cassis and toasted oak notes and a velvety mouthfeel that coats the palate.Author: Per-Henrik Mansson
Burghound | Rating: 92As one would expect from the '96 vintage at this point, the full, expressive, black fruit aromas remain entirely primary and lead to medium weight flavors of mouth coating richness and a fruit-driven complexity. This is still firmly tannic and the structural impression is accentuated by the bright, intense, indeed even vibrant acidity. I very much like the style of this because if though it is a touch awkward today, the excellent potential is evident.Author: Allen Meadows
International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94Medium-deep red-ruby, with a hint of development at the rim. Deep, smoky aromas of espresso, bitter chocolate, meat and licorice, plus a floral topnote. Then penetrating, brisk and tightly wound, with terrific verve and structure. Boasts superb vivacity but comes across as surprisingly supple owing to its excellent extract. Finishes firmly tannic, with late hints of woodsmoke and chocolate. |The grapes ripened on photosynthesis during a clear, cold September, retaining strong acidity. The cool weather allowed for a natural cold maceration prior to the fermentation.|Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: September/October 2002
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96This dark ruby-colored wine is unbelievable, and potentially will be Jadot's finest 1996. An awesome nose of deep black cherries intermingled with sauteed mushrooms, underbrush, stones, and minerals is followed by an amazingly powerful yet tense personality. Complex layers of intense, precise, pure, and earthy fruit cascade over the palate in this full-bodied, thickly-textured, muscular, masculine, and well-delineated wine. The harmonious juxtaposition between this offering's outstanding depth and richness and its elegant focus is mind-blowing. A tour de force!Author: Pierre Rovani
Self | Rating: 17Nose of a typical Burgundy, earthy aroma with hints of espresso and chocolate. Upon openng, acidic and very pleasant fruity finish. After 1-2hrs decanting, the earthy flavor begins to dominate. A well layered wine.Author: mavaron
