The dark-colored 1995 Musigny has blackberry, cassis, and sweet floral aromas. It is a masculine, broad-shouldered wine with loads of concentrated dark fruit and violet flavors. Dense, intense, yet completely backward and closed, it will require significant cellaring. Projected maturity: 2007-2015.
