Wine Spectator 94 points: "A wine that continues to improve with age. Shows loads of ripe plum, almost prune, with hints of vanilla and mineral. Full, chewy and tight. Still needs time.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. Best after 2008."  (5/2007)

 

Jancis Robinson 17.5/20 points: "Transparent ruby. Classic ripe Pauillac with a bit of spicy evolution. Still with a bit of tannin and freshness. Lots of fun for claret lovers now. When to drink: 2008 to 2028."  (6/2019)

 

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by reticent, restrained aromatics suggesting earth, herbs and subtle fruit. The wine hits the palate with a brutal, tannic overlay, but behind that are impressive levels of black and red fruits. As is the case with many 1995s, the wine's structural components still dominate..."  (8/2011)

 

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(76% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 7% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot; 5.43 g/l total acidity; 12.9% alcohol): Deep ruby with a touch of garnet at the rim. Expressive nose melds red cherry, dried herbs, incense and sandalwood, along with an obvious note of oaky torrefaction. Very smooth on entry, with good balance to its red and black fruit and earthy underbrush flavors. Turns a little tough and lacks complexity on the nutty finish, which hints at iodine and smoke."  (1/2012)
