It is hard to choose a favorite although the 1995 is a smoother more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color and sexy flamboyant aromatics of pain grille black fruits and cedar. Exquisite on the palate this full-bodied layered multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020. collapse

Wine Spectator, January 2007
Crushed blackberries with licorice and light spice. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a caressing delicious finish. Starting to come around. Rich racy and balanced.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2007.

Very sweet with luscious tannins – much less fierce than in most other 1995s. A very attractive gamey wine with perhaps quite a high proportion of Merlot. Polished finish – sweet but not tarty. Very persistent. 18/20 collapse

Silky sweet and tender in the middle palate; leather game and chocolate notes add complexity to the wine strong currant component. Showing slightly less harmoniously than the '96 perhaps due to the bottling but this thoroughly seductive wine has all the components for future greatness. 92(+?) points collapse

The colour shows no sign of age, although the nose has less aromatic force than one would have expected. It does show charm and elegance, however. The attack is fresh and limpid, and the moderately concentrated fruit is backed by firm tannins. There's plenty of grip here, but it lacks a little punch and persistence. Still highly enjoyable and finely balanced. collapse
