Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Very highly regarded by the chateau, I have found the 1978 to be very good … It is dark ruby with a moderately intense bouquet of herbs, black cherries, spice, oak, and leather. On the palate, the wine is medium to full bodied, with a dusty tannic texture. (RP) Inner quote mark (1/1998)

K&L Notes

Praise from Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Cos d’Estournel dinner at St. John. A deep brick core with a tawny rim. The nose is light, but has character with mulberry, iodine, warm bricks plus a faint tinge of tinned mushroom that turns more beetroot with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, fully mature with relative light tannins. Conservative, but not as austere as other ’78 northern Medocs." (11/2009)
