This dark ruby-colored wine is unbelievable, and potentially will be Jadot’s finest 1996. An awesome nose of deep black cherries intermingled with sauteed mushrooms, underbrush, stones, and minerals is followed by an amazingly powerful yet tense personality. Complex layers of intense, precise, pure, and earthy fruit cascade over the palate in this full-bodied, thickly-textured, muscular, masculine, and well-delineated wine. The harmonious juxtaposition between this offering’s outstanding depth and richness and its elegant focus is mind-blowing.
