Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

JancisRobinson.com – 16

Blackish with some notes of purple still! Intense nose. Round and gamey without quite the freshness of some 1995s and 1996s tasted alongside. Different! Tannins no longer in the way. I think this needs drinking. [02/11/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020

Robert Parker – 87

Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London. This is displaying more secondary aromas on the nose, slightly riper than the 1996, more red fruits than black with raspberry and strawberry with hints of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied, very smooth and rounded, moderate complexity, a nice citrus edge. But it takes its foot off the accelerator in the middle which compared to more recent vintages is relatively linear and one-dimensional, finished with a rather sullen, tertiary finish, as if the wine has gone off in a sulk for no apparent reason.  Not a bad wine by any means, but it will not etch itself on your memory as a classic 1995. Drink now-2015. Tasted May 2009. [Neal Martin, 01/05/2009]

Anticipated maturity: 2010-2015

Vinous – 90+

Dark ruby-red. Black- and redcurrants and smoke on the nose; less oak-spicy today than the ’96. Silky and harmonious but currently rather withdrawn. Not quite as sweet as the ’96. Here the substantial toothcoating tannins come across as somewhat tougher, but there enough sheer extract for balance. Interestingly, this backward, rather powerful wine suggests the structure and grip of cabernet, while the silkier mouth feel of the ’96 suggests a high percentage of merlot. [Stephen Tanzer, 05/01/1998]
