IWC 91
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 1999
Full red-ruby. Explosive aromas of boysenberry juice espresso and smoky oak. Thick and lush with terrific volume in the mouth; harmonious acidity gives the flavors clarity and brightness. Very long sweet finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2016
The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an "airy," perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase?... The 1996 Rauzan-Segla now at 20 years of age has an "airy," perfumed bouquet with wilted rose petals, undergrowth and dried orange peel scents. What it lacks is a sense of presence. Perhaps it is enduring a dumb phase? The palate is much better than the aromatics, showing fine balance and crisp tannins. The acidity is well judged and lends this Margaux plenty of freshness and it unfurls on the finish with white pepper, cedar and sea salt notes that linger long in the mouth. What starts as a modest wine ends really rather lovely and it should continue to give a decade or two of more drinking pleasure. Tasted July 2016. - Neal Martin
