9.4

The 95 is broader, riper, rounder and more lush than the 94. Sweet ripe cooked blackberries, black raspberries, black plum, cooked strawberry compote, dry cranberries, sweet spice, dark cocoa, dried flowers, dry tobacco leaf, soft leather, sweetened coffee grounds, wet black earth, gravely pebbles and round dark fruit finish that doesn't end. Out of 375ml. It's perfect now and will last in good form another 5-7 years in 375ml. Proper storage of course.

Smoky dark berry, cigar box, wet gravel. Quite elegant with a long finish. One of the wines of the day.

1995. A little past its prime but a good wine for sure.

1995 vintage. Exceptional provenance and pedigree. Some argued she needs more time, others embraced her current state of appeal. Heavy leather, spice and texture. Big void on the fruit profile. Nonetheless enjoyable.
