Deep ruby colour with bright red tinges. The nose is intense and complex, still a little austere but with great concentration. It shows black fruits, cherries and olives, liquorice and a hint of leather. The mouth is round and fleshy, well structured. The tannins are dense and still tight and the finish is powerful and long.

Wine SpectatorVery youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateStill closed and tannic, the 1995 requires an additional 5-6 years of cellaring. It should keep well through 2020.
