94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998

Excellent deep ruby color. Very complex aromas of blackcurrant, wild plum, violets, minerals, tar and smoky oak. Dense and supple, with great sweetness of fruit. Doesn't have quite the sheer power of the '96, but the flavors build and build. Substantial tannins are chewier than those of the '96 but hit the palate later. 1986 was the vintage with the highest level of polyphenols ever recorded at this estate, but '95 was the runner-up, according to Pontallier. Because this big, tannic wine needed longer barrel aging, it was bottled later than normal, in November of '97.

Fruit bomb!

The blend of Cab and Merlot has a phenominal has a saturated purple color. The nose reveals creme de casis, and blackberry,with a bit of a nuance of oak if you can detect it. The finish is almost hedonistic! This vintage can easily be cellared for 20 more yrs!
Fruit So Fresh You Want To Slap It

Like all fine bordeaux, they tend to at first taste a bit like Prince Charle's childhood riding boots. As you drink more and more, however, you get cranked, convince yourself that's it was worth it, and then feel guilty the next day about tapping a bit of junior's college fund to indulge your outlandish habit. Every time I crack one of these I have a vision in my mind of a lot of arrogant french guys falling off their barstools in gales of laughter at the thought of us going wacky for their fruit juice. With that said it is good but 350 pesos is just extortion.
Thrilling!!!
