- Crimsom color. It's in total harmony with a medium/full body. Satin-Like texture with a long finish - What a wonderful wine! Full bodied, round mouthfeel with 45 second finish.
Great time to drink this vintage.

Held up next day very well.

still somewhat youthful, drank with braised short ribs and put it against the Pichon Lalande of the same year. The Lynch Bages had more fruit and was slightly more elegant.

I really enjoyed this wine. Most of all I thought it well balanced and did not feel that alcohol content at all.

amazing amount of fruit initially emerged from the glass, very round on the palate but within one hour was pretty dead. I enjoyed this immensely but would advise one to drink quickly after opening

great aromas of plum and spice. well balanced, and well knit tannins one would expect from a ps at this age. semilingering finish about 10 seconds. very enjoyable.

Holding up well for a 95 chardonnay! Secondary characteristics taking over but some fruit still apparent really fun drink.

Bottle had fill into the neck, poured immediately, brick in color, on nose spicebox, pepper and brown sugar. On palate a mature Bordeaux but still with substantial fruit, finish 30 seconds, well balanced and a complete enjoyment. I wish I had more bottles.

although lacking finesse, this did benefit from a few days of air. Was a bit disappointed when comparing with the Gaston Chiquet 1998.

I liked it but not as much as Gary. I think it's a little too restrained for me but would accompany a meal well.
