A particularly hot and dry summer, followed by a dry autumn, in spite of the much needed rain which fell in mid-September, produced, quite exceptionally, for the third consecutive year, a precocious vintage. The wines of 1995 are, all at once, concentrated, well-structured, with very ripe tannins. They are in the same class as the 1929, 1945, 1949, 1959, 1961, 1970 and 1990 vintages.
The bouquet is explosive and still very fresh. On the palate, the well-balanced body is enveloped in a parade of aromas and silky tannins. The resulting wines are dense, subtle, complex and harmonious.
