This wine may turn out to be outstanding. It offers a dark plum color, and high quality aromatics consisting of pain grille, lead pencil, smoke, and black cherry and currant fruit. In the mouth, this is a sweet, medium-bodied, round, spicy, succulently-textured Bon Pasteur with a plump, fleshy finish. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012.

Beautiful aromas of flowers, plum and licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Turns a little austere.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Drink now.
