A thick and compact wine, although slightly fat. Stunning aromas of violets, berries. Full-bodied and chunky, with lovely tobacco and cherry flavors and a long, velvet-textured finish.

Mid crimson. Full, confident and slightly farmyardy on the nose. Attractively aromatic, believe it or not. Good palate attack and surprisingly well-melded tannins. This seems to have more weight than the 1996s.

The 1995 has turned out well, displaying a dark ruby/purple color, and aromas of minerals, black currants, and smoky new oak. In the mouth, it is a medium-weight, backward, well-delineated Pauillac with plenty of tannin, and a true vin de garde style.
