“BORDEAUX 1995 REVISIT
Hosted a dinner with top quality Bordeaux 95 to see how it has evolved 20 years on. Overall it looks like it’s a St Emilion vintage, as the top 3 goes to 1. Angelus 2. Figeac 3. Haut Brion. But my #1 favorite was Pichon Baron.
Served blind, this was my #2 WOTN. Extremely superb nose, fruity, forward and addictive. Palette told me it was extremely merlot driven, very rounded, a slight blemish was slightly green. My first instinct was Pichon Lalande, should have factored in the green.”
