Expert Reviews

89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998

Very good deep ruby-red. Smoke and currants on the nose. Black raspberry, minerals and graphite on the palate. Has a velvety texture but comes across as less harmonious than the '95; though even, the tannins are more noticeable today. Doesn't offer quite the sweetness or grip of the '96.

Member Notes

This '95 drinking well...
by Bacchus
Had this at a recent (June/2001) 1990s Bordeaux tasting and it was very nice...The nose had a melange of herbaceousness, cocoa, toast and dark cherry fruit. The palate of dried cherries, freshly-turned earth and chocolate cherries after a bit of aeration spread into a satisfying finish of soil and cherry fruit roll-up.
