Tasted at Berry Brother & Rudd’s vertical. The 1995 is probably reaching its peak. It retains that lovely Graves bouquet with tertiary notes subtly interwoven into the red berry fruit, that meaty element only becoming evident with continued aeration. The palate is sensual on the entry with a rounded texture, plenty of sous-bois notes defining the finish that is long in the mouth. The savoury side of this wine is less obvious here that on previous bottles. Drinking beautifully now. (NM)
A chewy, burly wine for aging. Big Haut-Bailly. Vivid berry and grape aromas. Full-bodied and tough, with masses of tannins and a long, wet earth and fruit aftertaste. (JS)
Deeper red-ruby color. Less expressive, less obviously ripe aromas of redcurrant, blueberry, smoke and game. Then silky and soft in the mouth, with insinuating flavors of plum, raspberry, woodsmoke, minerals and flowers. Firm but perfectly integrated acidity gives this wine good shape and cut. Finishes with tongue-coating but supple tannins and subtle flavor. In the more typical feminine style of Haut-Bailly, notes Sanders. (ST)
Transparent. Nourishing. Quite high acidity. Graphite finish. Lively. Very very fresh. Long. Very very slightly inky. 17/20
