Wine Spectator's Note, January 1999

"Shows wet earth, tobacco and fruit character on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with velvety tannins and a dark-chocolate aftertaste. A bit more fruit concentration in the center-palate would be nice. Best after 2000. 26,500 cases made". JS

Robert Parker's Note - Wine Advocate, April 1999

"Beychevelle's 1996 reveals an evolved, dark plum color. The nose offers toasty new oak in an open, charming style with berry fruit intermixed with spice. It is an uninspiring example, particularly for such a top-notch terroir, but the wine is medium-bodied and cleanly made, with moderate longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012".
