Bordeaux 1995, 1996 and 1998 – drinking well yet?

The following red bordeaux from the 1995, 1996 and 1998 vintages were tasted blind recently (but blind only within vintage) as part of the process of monitoring the evolution and progress of a particular cellar of well-priced, classic wines bought for entertaining large numbers of guests.

Not especially intense and some with quite inky tannins still. Very varied with some of these less exalted clarets very “pleasant” and ready to drink now.
