I did not comment on the '95. You are correct it is a beautiful wine. I have only one bottle left. It is ready and hard to believe it will get any better. Shows how good CC ages gracefully.

My local shop has the 2003 Felsina CC for sale. Blech, 2003!
2003 is a year to avoid almost everywhere. I am not buying any '03 to cellar. OK, now let's hear everybody that dissagrees

Many many great German rieslings from 03 that I would cellar if I had the time/space/money, and while I don't buy many 03 wines in general because of my need to do Precise Purchasing for short-term consumption and I agree many of the wines can be sloppy, I tasted some nice 03 Loire reds that will age as monuments to the vintage, of course the 03 Loire sweet wines, and then apparently there is more to France than the Loire, but I haven't tasted much of it yet..
When I taste a CF from the Loire all I ever seem to get is green vegetal flavors therefore I think '03 was a bad year
