DescriptionBonnes Mares 1996
"Christophe Roumier fashioned some seriously impressive '96s and this has finally begun to open on the spicy, pure, airy and elegant nose while displaying really lovely aromatic complexity that continues on the relatively round sappy and sweet flavors that unlike many '96s, possesses excellent acid/fruit/tannin balance on the gorgeously persistent finish. While one can discern some initial development, this is still a baby and will definitely be a long-distance runner so if you own it, additional patience is definitely required." (94pts Allen Meadows, Burghound #26, April 2007)
