Following a classic Graves aromatic profile of weedy tobacco smoke fruitcake and red and black currants this dense rich medium-bodied 1996 reveals outstanding purity and ripeness as well as glorious levels of finesse and complexity. It is not a muscular weighty wine but rather one of precision and delicacy. The tannin is sweet but the 1996 Pape-Clement is capable of lasting two decades. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2020. One of the quintessentially elegant complex and most distinctive wines of Bordeaux Pape-Clement has been in top form since the 1986 vintage. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
