1993 Le Bon Pasteur

Average critic rating : 87.5 points



Long-time readers are aware of my admiration for the husband and wife oenologist team of Dany and Michel Rolland. Michel is more visible in the international scene as he has performed magic at numerous estates in Italy, Spain, Argentina, California, and, of course, France. Rolland's success has not come without a price, as he now must endure an unprecedented level of criticism from a whining group of underachievers that appears to have one complaint - Rolland produces better wine than they do. This saturated dark garnet/plum/ruby-colored wine is a fine effort for the 1993 vintage, a year that still offers good value for readers looking for moderately-priced Bordeaux. The 1993 Bon Pasteur displays a sweet, smoky, coffee, black-cherry-scented nose, surprising fat, a soft texture, low acidity, and a spicy, chewy, medium-bodied finish. This is one of the most concentrated, delicious, and complex efforts of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: now-2007. Wine Advocate.February, 1997



Elegant, enticing, subtle berry and dark chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium in body, soft tannins and fresh, fruity finish. Drinkable now. 3,330 cases made. James Suckling,Wine Spectator 1996
