I felt this had a wonderful old-world quality to it. Earthy nose with a balanced mouth feel. This was the second bottle in a couple of months, both expressed the region very well. Nice complexity without being confusing.
Red fruit nose, softer side as well, but also tannic, front end approachable, finishes structured. Very very tannic, but mellowed with a few hours of air. Fairly primal, but with a depth and complexity to integrate and improve over the next decade, good stuff.

(Chateau Lagrange St Julien) Maturing aromas here, and an elegant appeal. Minerals, gravel and black fruits, with nuances of roast lamb. On the palate it has texture, with fruit and minerality, and there are still some tannins here. Lovely wealth of rich character behind the fading structure. More focused than many other 1995s I've tried, but needs a couple of years to come together.
