I have never been impressed with this wine, which continues to muddle along, revealing little concentration, interest, complexity, or flavor dimension. The light ruby/garnet color displays some amber at the edge. The uninspiring nose offers dusty aromas of dried fruits, earth, and spice. This light to medium-bodied wine still possesses moderately high tannin, shallow fruitiness, and a tart, astringent finish. It is a strong candidate for drying out before the tannin fades away. Anticipated maturity: now-2008. Last tasted 11/97. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition # B1



A deceptive wine, still not giving much. Pure fruit aromas of raspberry and strawberry. full-bodied with fine tannins. Try after 1997.--The Bordeaux 50. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1994
