1995 Vintage Report

Italian: 1995 is generally good vintage for Italian wines that was overshadowed by the exceptinal vintages that followed. The vintage produced consistent wines. The best examples from Tuscany and Piedmont are now at there peak of their maturity.
 
Bordeaux: The 1995 vintage produced consistent wines that will reach full maturity between now and 2012. Superb weather and July and August augured well for the crop, however rain in September slightly impaired the quality. Unlike 1994, the rain only lasted for just over a week and those producers that delayed harvesting were rewarded with a harvest of mature grapes. The wines produced from these vineyards are dense tannic affairs that should mature well.


 
Spain: Rioja; The 1995 wine vintage was an 'Excelente' vintage with what was (then - superseded in 1996 and again in 1997 and 1998) the biggest harvest of all time and the second 5-star year vintage in a row.

 
Vintage Port: 1995 Vintage port. If it hadn't directly followed the quite exceptional 1994 Vintage, 1995 could well have been a fully declared Vintage. It did however produce exceptionally good single quinta's with concentrated, fruity and well-structured ports. The 1995 port vintage also offers plenty of good examples of barrel aged port from established producers such as Kopke, Messias, Barros and Krohn that would offer exceptional drinking today.

Messias Port, 1995

Colheita Single Harvest

The Messias colheita port from the good 1995 vintage has been aged in a barrel until bottling this year.

The extended barrel aging has given this wine a complex fusion of dried fruit and cedar notes. On the palate the wine is smooth and full bodies with plenty nuts and sweet fruit on the palate, fine balance. A tremendous finish which goes on forever. There's no question about the quality on display here.

A very good wine from a great year with grip, tannin, medium to full body, and excellent ripeness, this unevolved, backward yet promising Poujeaux needs cellaring. There is some mineral-tinged, sweet black currant fruit in both the aromatics and flavors.

1995 Croft Quinta do Roeda Vintage Port in Gift Box with Accessories, 1995

Vintage Port

*** 90 Points Cellar Tracker ***

The 1995 Croft Roeda Port is an outstanding wine from the very good 1995 vintage.

It is characterised by a deep brown-black, with narrow brick brown rim. Ripe and mature fruit on the nose. Quite finely constituted and complex. Chocolate, butterscotch, prunes and cedar notes – quite exotic. Rounded, luscious, but with good tannic structure. Ripe, chocolatey, fudge flavours. Some jammy fruit, but only on the finish.

Chateau Latour, 1995

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe

** 96 Points - Parker ***

Reviews"A beauty, the opaque dense purple-colored 1995 exhibits jammy cassis, vanillin, and minerals in its fragrant but still youthful aromatics. Medium to full-bodied, with exceptional purity, superb concentration, and a long, intense, ripe, 40-second finish, this is a magnificent example of Latour. As the wine sat in the glass, scents of roasted espresso and toasty new oak emerged. This classic will require considerable cellaring." Parker, Wine Advocate 2000

Chateau Leoville Barton, 1995

92-94 Wine Journal

Reviews: A lovely classic Bordeaux nose: autumn leaves, wood and dried fruits. Quite and acidic entry with a soft tannic core. A potentially great wine struggling against the vintage. A fine 1993 like La Dominique.Wine Journal
Jan 2000

This estate has been extremely successful in recent vintages. One of the biggest, richest, most impressive wines of the vintage, Leoville-Barton's 1993 reveals a saturated black/purple color, dense, foresty, rich, blackcurrant, and chocolatey aromas and flavors, excellent ripeness and depth, good glycerin, and hard tannin in the finish.

Chateau Mouton Rothschild, 1995

Pauillac Premiere Grand Cru Classe

Bottled in June, 1997, this profound Mouton is more accessible than the more muscular 1996. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and 19% Merlot, it reveals an opaque purple color, and reluctant aromas of cassis, truffles, coffee, licorice, and spice. In the mouth, the wine is "great stuff," with superb density, a full-bodied personality, rich mid-palate, and a layered, profound finish that lasts for 40+ seconds. There is outstanding purity and high tannin, but my instincts suggest this wine is lower in acidity and slightly fleshier than the brawnier, bigger 1996. Both are great efforts from Mouton-Rothschild.

Churchill's Port, 1995

Quinta do Agua Alta

Despite its thoroughly traditional-sounding name Churchill is the newest of the British-owned Port companies, founded in 1981 by J. Graham.

Quinta Agua Alta is named after the spring at the top of the vineyard and it produces wonderfully pure and fresh water that bubbles up through the granite rock below the thin top soil. Olives and figs grow in abundance around the vineyard which produces a quite stunninly powerful port.

Deep purple in colour with a mass of soft and concentrated fruit. There's plenty of tannin to give structure and a pleasing earthiness on the finish. This is the perfect way to round off a good dinner.
