Chateau Le Bon Pasteur 1996
|Brand||Chateau Le Bon Pasteur|
Super Pormerol for super price.
Bon Pasteur's 1996 is lighter than I thought from cask, which kept my score more conservative. It exhibits spicy new oak, medium body, abundant smoky, black cherry and mocha-tinged fruit, good weight, excellent purity, and a firm, structured, muscular finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Aromas of cherries, mushrooms and some oak. Medium-bodied, with slightly drying tannins but some pretty berry and toasted oak on the finish. A bit lean, but very good.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
