Somewhat closed and reticent after bottling, but still impressive, this 1995 possesses a dark ruby/purple color, as well as an oaky nose with classic scents of cassis, vanillin, cedar, and spice. dense and medium to full-bodied, with softer tannin and more accessibility than the 1996, but not quite the packed and stacked effect on the palate, the 1995 is an outstanding textbook s-julien that will handsomely repay extanded cellaring.

Less intense than the 1996. Very, very dry and youthful. A dry finish. Still very rigid. Needs lots of time. Very uncompromising.Drink 2012-2030. Date tasted 23rd Jan 08.
