A classic Medoc nose, with mossy undergrowth and tobacco aromatics. Medium-bodied, elegant and savoury with fine drying tannins. Excellent flavour and concentration, softness, flesh and length. (13% alc.)
Drink: 2015 to 2030
90 Points Robert Parker
While not as backward as the 1996, the opaque purple-colored 1995 is a tannic, unevolved, dense, concentrated wine that will require 8-10 years of cellaring. The 1995 exhibits pain grille, blackcurrant, mineral, and subtle tobacco in its complex yet youthful aromatics. Powerful, dense, concentrated cassis and blueberry flavors might be marginally softer than in the 1996, but there is still plenty of grip and structure to this big wine. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2030.
