Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
92

Totally shut down and enclosed, with an impressively saturated purple/black color and a promising but tightly strung nose of mineral, vanilla, espresso, black cherry and currant, this wine has beautiful purity, medium to full body, relatively high but sweet tannin, and a long 30-35 second finish. The wine is very firm but impressive as well as promising. Patience please!

Very deep purple, garnet core. The nose is a sulky, little sod: utterly closed and yielding nothing at the moment despite vigorous swirling. A slight bretty aroma develops with time (eventually.) The full-bodied palate is tannic with broody, black fruits and rather low acidity but with aeration turns more decadent, though harmonious with just a little astringency on the finish. Needs time but it has great potential. Tasted November 2006. Drink 2010-2020.

Wine Spectator

Aromas of violet, berries and cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a medium finish. The fruit is still tied up in knots. Give it time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. James Suckling

Very good saturated ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of black cherry, chocolate and licorice; more crystallized than cooked fruit-as the heat in '95 was not quite like that of 1990, according to Valette. Velvety and chocolatey in the mouth, with very sweet, port-like flavors verging on raisiny. Has the chewy extract to buffer its 13.9% alcohol. Quite perfumed in the mouth, though still a bit tired by the bottling. A huge wine that finishes with substantial but harmonious tannins.
