WS94
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2013
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.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS

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 St.-Julien that will handsomely repay extended cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2025.</P>

Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, January 2013
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. 91 points

Very dark lustrous ruby. Quite evolved nose. Scented. Hint of linseed oil. Solid, well balanced, lots of stuffing and the tannins are well managed – almost imperceptible until the very end of the palate. 17/20
