This wine is already showing exceptionally well, even though it is not close to its plateau to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit, truffles, vanillin, and minerals. Lush, with ripe cassis fruit on the attack, outstanding balance, medium body and layers of intensity, this is an elegant, graceful, smoothly textured, beautifully made Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018.

Attractive aromas of chocolate and blackberry. medium-bodied, with velvety tannins, but they turn slightly tough and dry on the finish. Too much new wood? Promises more on the nose than it delivers on the palate, like so many '96s. Best after 2000.

Attractive lemon, pineapple and vanilla character. Medium- to full-bodied, with plenty of fruit and a fresh finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2004.

Big and tannic, this needs time. Lots of red berries and floral character on nose and palate. Full-bodied, with a slightly hollow midpalate at the moment. Very tannic, with an extracted, mouthpuckering finish. Try after 2002.

This young Bordeaux shows intense aromas of wet earth, stone and berries. It's full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Very well made indeed. Best after 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Robe : Deep red Bouquet : With great intensity, the first impression evokes delicate notes of chocolate and deep berries (blackberries, cassis). Palate :The attack proceeds softly to reveal a broad evolution that envelops the mouth and lingers for moments. The body is fine, silky and quite beautiful. Overall Impression : This wine is one of the most distignuished, finding its balance without becoming stereotypically concentrated or fluffy. Service :Decanting is recommended before serving.Decanting is recommended before serving.Decanting is recommended before serving. Classification: A.O.C.
