Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This would appear to be a sure bet for the wine of the vintage. Certainly, it is the most complete and backward 1987, with at least 10-15 years of aging potential. The touching dedication from the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild’s daughter on the label is almost worth the price of one bottle. Additionally, 1987 was the last vintage of the Baron, and thus will probably fetch a fortune in 40 or 50 years. This is one of the deepest and most opaque wines of the vintage, with a tight, yet promising bouquet of cedar and black currants. This wine exhibits surprising depth, medium to full body, and plenty of tannin in the finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/1997)


Varietal mix:

Cabernet Sauvignon 85%
Merlot 8%
Cabernet Franc 7%

Tasting notes:

The wine is a dark red, shading to orange at the rim, while the nose reveals notes of wax and fruit, especially raspberry and cherry, with aromas of humus and leather.

The attack is elegant, still with a touch of freshness. There is vanilla on the palate, the tannins are well-integrated, the texture is silky.

This is a beautifully harmonious wine, with a finish on ripe fruit and spice flavours.
