Notes from the critics:
90-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Excellent deep red-ruby colour. Explosive aromas of sappy blackcurrants, minerals and smoky oak, with a floral topnote and a hint of chocolate. Wonderful sweetness and inner-mouth flavor, with enticing cedary oak on the back end. Has excellent underlying structure and a positive hint of austerity. Not quite as fat as the '95, but very concentrated and persistent. Showing more grip and style than the '94 Margaux. (ST) (5/1996)

90 points Wine Spectator
Fabulous aromas of vanilla, toasted oak and fruit, ultrafine tannins and a long, caressing finish. All in finesse. From a winery on the fast track to the top. (1/1997)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A saturated dark purple colour is accompanied by sweet, earthy, herb, and blackcurrant aromas. The wine is dominated by its tannin and structure. There is good weight, medium body, and an impression of ripeness and sweet fruit, but patience will most definitely be required... This muscular, virile style of Rauzan should be at its peak of maturity between 2006-2020. (RP) (2/1997)

medium body. Need to decant. On opening nose is tight.
Earthy.black fruits. Moderate finish. Smooth and easy to drink.

Some air and the medium plus body comes with powerful aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, menthol tabacco, pencil-shavings and barnyard in a strong tannin-backbon. Long finish and unexpectedly gripping, ready to drink!
