Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 1998
This wine is already showing exceptionally well even though it is not close to its plateau of maturity. The deep ruby/purple color is followed by scents of roasted herbs intermixed with sweet black currant fruit truffles... This wine is already showing exceptionally well even though it is not close 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.Since the acquisition of this estate by the Cathiard family this property has become one of Bordeaux's success stories producing elegant flavorful complex very complete wines.

Aromas of blackberries with hints of cedar and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied with silky firm tannins and a medium finish. Needs time still.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. 9100 cases made. –JS
