International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 90-93
Very good red-ruby color. Highly aromatic, nuanced nose combines oriental spices, raspberry, iron, rose petal, minerals and cocoa. Concentrated and layered, with terrific inner-mouth flavor and fresh, harmonious acidity. Finishes very long, with even, tongue-coating tannins. Still, not as impressive today as the '96, which I slightly underrated a year ago.

Wine Advocate (WA) Review

The backward 1997 (2,300 cases produced) needs 3-4 years of cellaring. The dense plum/ruby/purple color is accompanied by a closed bouquet of mocha, dried tomato skin, and black fruits. In the mouth, it is one of the most muscular 1997s, exhibiting outstanding concentration, length, intensity, and depth, copious tannin, and a fine mouth-feel. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025.-Robert Parker

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

This is a forgotten Pétrus. Good dark color, with lovely plum and light raspberry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh, fruity finish. A beauty. Fresh and long. Slightly better than when I tasted it a few years back.--Pétrus non-blind vertical. Best after 2005. –JS
