90 points Wine Spectator
A mouthful for the vintage, with its lovely berry, chocolate and tobacco aromas and flavors, medium to full body and chewy tannins. Fresh finish. (1/1997)
It retains that lovely tertiary, cedar and raspberry leaf bouquet and there is still that slight barnyard tincture. But compared to Ducru, it shows decent delineation. The palate is medium-bodied and more savory than previous bottles. The acidity is still a little sharp but the hardness has mellowed nicely with a touch of tart cherry towards the abrupt crisp finish. (NM) (7/2012)
Always stored properly in a climate controlled cellar.
