    For G. Jayer, lbsl
    Bottle (1)

    “This was an extremely oaky wine on release and while the wood influence has moderated with time in bottle, it is still far from invisible. Happily, the perfumed, ripe, spicy and elegant fruit is very dense, particularly in the context of the '96 vintage, and the wood does not dominate though there is a slight sweetening effect on the palate as it rounds off the otherwise nicely detailed flavors. To be sure, this is a delicious wine that is impressive in its style but one that is also carrying enough wood that stops just shy of unbalancing the finish that displays just a hint of edginess. For my taste this has arrived at its peak though I underscore that there is absolutely no rush to drink.” (92 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, June 2016)
