Le Vin Maghani 1995 - Dm Canet-Valette
The older brother - and indeed far more expensive brother (1999,2000 & 2001 all 20Euro's the 1995 40!) this had everything the 2001 has - only so much more - fabulous it if wasn't twice the price of the 2001 it would have been coming home with me as it was it is a distant memory to be savoured. The wine unsurprisingly tasted pretty similar to the 2001 - except that the tannins were softer, there were some dried fruit notes and the wine was so much more complex than the later vintage - worth more than 2001 - yes - worth double - no way!
