Although similar to the 1996, the 1995's fruit is more accessible, and while the tannin is elevated, it is buffered by lower acidity, as well as more glycerin and fat. The 1995 offers an opaque purple color, and a glorious nose of new oak, spice, and abundant black fruits. This full-bodied, super-extracted, multi-layered wine must be tasted to be believed - especially for readers who remember Monbousquet as the soft, innocuous, commercially-styled St.-Emilion it was for many decades. The 1995 has more accessibility than its blockbuster younger sibling, but it still requires 4-5 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2022. Robert Parker

1995 is the wine of the night. Rich, balanced, round and delicious.

1995 - lovely and fresh with good tannin and acid structure, especially for a 22 year old wine. Could have done with another 10+ years. Black current, tobacco and leather on the very perfumed nose. Lovely and silky on the palate with dry but almost sweet tannins that finished minerally with a good medium length. Quite enjoyable now but imagine much better in time.

Took a while to open but showed great once it did. More time for this one I think.
