    Clos St. Denis 1996
    2lbsl, 2lwasl
    Magnum (5)

    "An expressive and still quite fresh nose of elegant red and black fruits is nuanced by notes of earth and spice hints but the barely medium weight flavors are quite light for what this is, all wrapped in a delicious finish where the '96 acidity is a background presence but not actually intrusive. While the '96 Clos St. Denis is certainly very pretty, it is more about grand cru finesse but premier cru weight. In short, this is perfectly good but not better. Note that this could easily be held for years but I do not see it improving from here as there is just not enough underlying material remaining." (89 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2011)

    "This bright ruby-colored wine exhibits raspberries, violets, porcini mushrooms, and black cherries on the nose. Extremely well-balanced, this wine is oily-textured, rich, medium-to-full-bodied, and offers a gorgeous mouthful of sweet cherries, earth, and metallic flavors that linger on the finish amidst traces of lightly charred oak…” (90-92 pts. Pierre Rovani, Wine Advocate #118, Aug. 1998)
