The 1995 Chambertin is medium-to-dark ruby-colored and reveals hints of amber along the edge of the glass. Aromatically, it displays plums, cherries, and hints of mint. It is a full-bodied, foursquare, long-term wine with unbelievable concentration of fruit. Tarry blackberries and black cherries are intermingled with herbs in this backward behemoth. Projected maturity: 2007-2014.
