Much more expressive on the nose than the '97--and darker and thicker--adding to the evidence that '96 is a better vintage in the northern Rhône. Delivers a round, clean, pure mouthfeel of vibrant, focused red berry and blackberry flavors. Superb balance, as it walks a tightrope among the relatively high acidity, ripe tannins and delicious fruit.

Here is a very intense colored wine, with a very fresh nose of fruits, flowers, with a touch of tea. Entry into the mouth is soft and suave, developing a powerful structure where power is combined with the sweetness. Slow evolution tannic juicy, powerful, spicy and coated, long finish, a little farm (too bad), but mineral constantly, the fruit comes in the mouth.

Very healthy deep crimson. Deeper than 1999 and 2004! Tangy, meaty nose. Fully evolved nose - almost as though there's some reduced Mourvèdre here. Very promising until the rather dried-out end. The best Jaboulet of these three reds but it cuts off a bit on the finish.
