La Romanée, Bouchard Père et Fils 1995
The nose is just beginning to reveal the barest trace of secondary aromas with subtle nuances of violets, earth, spice, smoke and hints of game that precede robust, structured and very dense, almost robust flavors that deliver outstanding length. There is not the finesse and almost perfect balance of the '96 but there is much more density and mid-palate sap plus a finishing note of chocolate. This is still relatively young and should last for 30+ years.
