I had high hopes for the 1995 vintage, purchased three bottles at auction quite cheaply. Reading through below comments however, I feared for the worst. Still - the bottle was in good condition, clean label, clearly stored well.
Nose - initially a bit bland, but improved through the evening with airing. Flavour - still quite good ( though I cannot compare against lets say 10 years ago ) Colour - still reddish like, not yet going to the brownish colour with older wines
Conclusion - I have to disagree with the 2011 end of drinking period, though I'm fan of older wines. This particular vintage ( if stored correctly ) can still by very much enjoyed right now !!!
Drank about 2.5 hours after bottle was opened at a friend's family dinner. Dark brown colour with bricking edges. Nose of blackcurrant and a bit of chocolate. On the palate, smooth black fruits, prunes, and leather. Velvety slightly chalky tannins. Medium finish. I feel this is already on a decline, drink up!
