  • User Avatar

    Very pretty aromas of blackberries, spices and milk chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and a silky mouthfeel. Still tight but refined and long. Just as I remember. Best after 2008. 12,500 cases made. -- J.S. 07/10/2012 Aromas of vanilla, dark fruit, compote, dried fruit and spice. Pronounced sweetness and chocolatey richness in the mouth. Balanced, with a chunky frame. Drink 2012-2016. Alc: 13%. (15.17 points) Decanter

    (1996 Vintage) Concentrated, Cassis, Mineral, Full-bodiedWine Advocate - 2nd Growth, St Estephe, Bordeaux, France- "Boasts aromas of new oak, jammy black currants, smoke, minerals, and new saddle leather. This multi-layered wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a nicely-textured, concentrated mid-palate, and an impressively long finish."
