Medium ruby with some tawniness. Real oak char followed by a more gamy, red fruited nose with a scooch of herb. Middle weight wine. Typical, strong 1995 structure of acidity and tannin, but this does not detract or seem out of balance at this point. Crackling, lively fruit underneath. In fact, for both the vintage and the Cru, it seems very civilized. Very enjoyable in a masculine, more strict style-I look forward to trying the rest tomorrow. Easily another decade to go. Much better than either Gilman or Burghound suggest.
