The herbal and roasted blackberry-scented 1995 Clos de Vougeot is medium-to-dark ruby-colored and reveals traces of amber. It possesses a tightly wound, super-concentrated core of blackberry, cassis, and brambleberry fruit. This firm, medium-to-full-bodied, backward wine is packed with loads of fruit and tannin. Projected maturity: 2006-2012+
