Tasting Notes:

94 points Wine Spectator

A beautiful wine, with layers of ripe fruit, berry, cedar, vanilla and light spice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Very, very classy stuff.  (2/2007)

92 points Wine Advocate

The 1995 reveals an opaque purple color, followed by a sweet, cassis-scented nose intermingled with roasted herbs and spicy oak. One of the more tannic, backward 1995s, with a 1986-like density, richness, and full-bodied power, this slowly evolving, giant-sized St.-Julien will test the patience of all but the most serious Bordeaux wine enthusiasts. (RP)  (12/1997)

91 points Int’l Wine Cellar

Very good ruby-red. Currant, tobacco, game and roasted nuts on the expressive nose. Full, supple and sweetly oaky. Also wears its oak more gracefully. Very long on the finish, with ripe, tongue-coating tannins. (ST)  (5/1998)
