As in most 1995s, the color remains a healthy dark plum/purple. One of the bigger wines of the vintage, the ripe, powerful Merlot component has buttressed the Cabernet elements, giving the wine plenty of body, tannin and La Mission's classic asphalt, cassis, blackberry, smoky barbecue, meaty notes intermixed with a hint of hot rocks...the wine is obviously high-class... this intense 1995 appears to be a top-class La Mission-Haut-Brion, not far off the mark established by the profound 1989 and superb 1990.

Was hitting on all cylinders... cassis, leather and earth.. smooth wine with plenty of years ahead of it... fruit was very present. Dark garnett color. Over time started to out shine the 98 soldera riserva

Very nice wine, but very young. Big, rich, round and tannic. Id wait another decade to open this one

1995: The "Oh well, why not" consolation prize wine, opened to keep the conversation going. Classic La Mission nose, very supple and approachable on the palate. Vaporized a bit quickly on the finish, yet wrapped up the evening nicely with a little breeding.
