Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
93

The 1996 exhibits a dark plum/ruby/purple color that is just beginning to lighten at the edge, surprisingly velvety tannins and a classic Pauillac bouquet of lead pencil shavings, cedarwood, black currants, sweet cherries and spice box. This medium to full-bodied, elegant, savory, broad wine is still five years away from full maturity. It should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate #196, Aug 2011)

Neal Martin
No Sco

Ex-cellar bottle tasted blind at the Lynch Bages vertical. Quite intense, broad, not complex, mulberry, blackberry, a touch of smoke, but there is a slight taint on this bottle. The palate is medium-bodied, chewy entry, coarse tannins, raspberry coulis, a touch of liquorice, very linear and straight-laced towards the sweet-sour, burnt honey finish that is quite glossy. It does not come across as naturally balanced as the 1995…there is something amiss with this sample. Tasted September 2009.
