I would echo Dale and go with the BP. Rolland's wines are usually approachable young. I tasted the 95-97 trio side by side about a year ago. Curiously, though not considered a good Pomerol vintage, 96 was IMO the best. The 95 was very fine also if you like the Rolland style.
It's been quite a while since I tasted the GPL 95. It should certainly be approachable now, but it has so much in reserve that I wouldn't open it now.
I don't drink wine because of religious reasons ... only for other reasons.
