This vintage is a wine full of contradictions and difficult to make out. The grapes were very acid, but produced a subtle wine. The sugar level was unusually high but the phenolic ripeness altered depending on different varieties. The cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon seemed riper than the merlots. The quality was very close to the last year's crop, but the structure of the wine was different. Missing the tannins of the '95, now the '96 tannins finished with a light bitter taste in the mouth. The wine was ample with a good structure and a pleasant harmony.
