93The Wine Advocate

...super-ripe nose of candied fruits and white chocolate and a floral, spicy, smoky, oily-textured mouth filled with ripe peaches. Well-delineated and impressively long...

Aromas of white flower & a hint of the exotic lead to rich, full and dense medium full flavors and a mouth coating, relatively powerful finish that offers impressive persistence. This is a lovely Bâtard that is more refined than most '95s..
