The profound 1995 Clos de l'Obac, with a total production of 150 cases, is an unfiltered wine that pushes extraction and intensity to the limit. Aged in 100% new French oak casks, it offers an opaque purple color, and huge, intense, unevolved but impressive aromas of kirsch, cassis, and blackberries intermingled with smoky, toasty oak. The wine possesses awesome concentration, phenomenal fruit extraction, and an explosive, tannic, glycerin-endowed, long finish. Compared to previous vintages of this wine, the 1995 is a backward, tannic, vin de garde that needs a minimum of 8-10 years of cellaring! This is a wine with 30-40 years of longevity, but readers unwilling to invest in a decade of patience will be disappointed in its performance. It is an exquisite, classic, uncompromising wine! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2030. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 113 Oct 1997
