Fascinating aromas of mineral lilac and blackberry follow through to a full-bodied palate with layers of silky tannins and a long finish. Just starting to come around. Give it more time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective... Fascinating aromas of mineral lilac and blackberry follow through to a full-bodied palate with layers of silky tannins and a long finish.

This bottle of '95 just refused to come out an play, unlike previous examples. It had a very tight bouquet with touches of redcurrant and wild hedgerow, later developing more exotic scents of dried apricot and dates. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, obdurate tannins, a touch of spice box and truffle leading to a masculine cedar, tobacco and truffle-tinged finish. Stoic, but because this bottle should have been afforded more decanting, coalescing only after I had donated my score!
