For some reason, this 1995 Chambertin is not quite firing on all cylinders, even though it is a lovely wine. It has a seductive bouquet with Morello, strawberry, a light marine influence and hints of Provencal herbs filtering through with time, though never quite achieving the bravura performance of the 1996 (for example.) The palate has a very fine lattice of tannins and perfect acidity, moderate weight in the mouth with beguiling symmetry, yet there is not the density of nobility of the succeeding vintage from Rousseau. Don’t feel guilty popping the cork now, but of course there is another ten years of pleasure for those who prefer to wait. ​(Neal Martin, The Wine Adovate, 31st Oct 2014, 94 Pts)
