No contemporaneous note. Took a bottle 3 nights ago to a Peter Sidebotham offline in York, with Mark Gough, David Bennett, Simon Beatty et al. Not decanted - it should have been. Full slightly opaque colour. Quite restrained on the nose, but essence of Vosne on the palate, although could still use a few more years. Delicious but not wholly friendly, and very much a 1995. Tasted blind, many thought it a Grand Cru, and none of us could imagine how Lalou Bize-Leroy conjures such a very fine wine out of a mere village lieu-dit. Astonishingly good, ridiculous price (but I bought it en primeur, so not prohibitive back then), will leave my other 3 bottles for another 5 years or so.
