I wish I had decanted this. The final 200ml were killer. The previous 550 were closed, foresty to a fault, and borderline off. Ex-cellar and clearly asleep. Wish I had more now that I know how to serve it.

Still youthful, but developing amazingly. Complex, integrated, firm tannins, but a silky texture. For me, this is drinking perfectly right now.

Bright Ruby to the rim. Rich Bordeaux nose and taste that shows no sign of age. Met every expectation of a 1995 Grand Cru Bordeaux.
