(Blind tasting) Lovely, minerally nose with dense fruit of plum, cedar and a beginning sweet dried fruit-aroma of maturity. A Point. Medium-fullish, Classic and balanced palate. Some sweet violet and plum fruit. Good intensity and very good grip. Positively austere. elegant and beautiful. Compared to 3 other 1995 Pomerol's and a Lynch-Bages, this wine showed above it's reputation. Not for cellaring, but drinking beautifully now. A surprise.
Nice wine. Can sense the '95 backwardness. Not sure if this was ever an outstanding wine but drinking great for 18 years old. Still some grip. Plum and cedar on the nose. Riper dark fruits on the palate along with some tobacco.
