Tasting Note:

"If it were not for the prodigious 1996, everyone would be concentrating on getting their hands on a few bottles of the fabulous 1995, which is one of the vintage's great success stories.
The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure, beautifully knit aromas of black fruits, minerals, vanillin and spice. On the attack, it is staggeringly rich, yet displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe cherry and cassis fruit, the judicious use of toasty new oak, and a thrilling mineral character intertwined with the high quality obtained by Lascases, make this a compelling effort. There is probably nearly as much tannin as in the 1996. The finish is incredibly long in this classic. Only 35% of the harvest was of sufficient quality for the 1995."

95/100 - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, February 1998
