Tasting notes
The wine still has a rather deep red colour and a bouquet which opens on wild berry fruit, blackcurrant and black cherry mingled with a subtle suggestion of mint. Full-bodied, it has a fine tannic structure, dense and rich, firm but not aggressive, combined with blackcurrant, vanilla, toast and a hint of smoke. Seductively complex, this is a very fine vintage.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Apr 1999)
This is a successful and seductive wine. The saturated ruby color is followed by sweet, roasted herb, and black currant aromas with lush toasty oak notes. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 25% Cabernet Franc, this medium-weight, elegant yet richly fruity wine possesses enough tannin to last two decades, but it will be one 1996 Medoc that will be drinkable at an early age. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.
