Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

A strong case can be made that this is the finest Duhart produced since the 1982. The color is a saturated dark ruby/purple. The bouquet offers aromas of blackberry fruit intermixed with licorice, minerals, and dried herbs. Rich and intense, with considerable finesse, medium to full body, and outstanding concentration and purity, this should be a reasonably priced wine. It reflects the increased attention Lafite's administrator, Charles Chevalier, has been giving this nearby estate.

Some plum and fresh herb character, with hints of cedar and lemon. Medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.

Musty but bodacious nose. Spice and pepper on the palate with dark fruit and pencil lead. Firm body with smooth tannins and perfect acidity. Very nice bordeaux.

Consistent notes with further bottle development. Lovely; full, rich; slight mocha on the nose; lots of depth; lovely ripe fruit; good follow-through; balanced; still youthful with firm tannins typical of the vintage beginning to soften; enjoyable now but will benefit from more bottle age.

Comes across as hard; very cool/simple cassis note. Iodine; little stinky/dungy; earth/leaf mold. Nice, but distinctly simpler than the other '96 Pauillacs, especially PLL. This is currently giving its best, I think, unlike many of the other '96 classed wines, which still felt tough at this tasting.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
