Dark ruby color with light sediment; This bottle seemed rather over but after decanting and air time finally opened up a bit. Definitely not in the same class as the previous bottle.

Chevillon Dinner, 1990-2002 (Lupa Restaurant, San Francisco): Similar color as the '90 Vaucrains. As with the pair of '96s, this was a tad less blockish than the Vaucrains, which made the texture more pleasing. Still pretty big and ripe, but seems less over the top than its vintage mate.
This was slightly oxidized on the get-go. Had a stenchy sock, football lockeroom profile that was difficult to get past. None the less, I braved a sip and found the fruit to be dull and dry.
Awesome wine, great fruit. Consumed long ago but stands out in my mind.
