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Spain: Rioja; The 1995 wine vintage was an 'Excelente' vintage with what was (then - superseded in 1996 and again in 1997 and 1998) the biggest harvest of all time and the second 5-star year vintage in a row.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

Barolo, 1995

Terre del Barolo - Riserva Castello

Barolo is known as the 'king of wines' and is made from the Nebbiolo grape. Heady aromas of rose, leather, vanilla, cherry, pepper, cranberry, strawberry. Fruits are perfectly knitted with the tannins and acidity. It's a powerful wine but remarkably subtle. Don't underestimate it and certainly serve it with food to show at it's best. Nebbiolo has naturally high tannins and acidity, so it will take on full-flavoured, rich foods no problem at all.

Chateau Kirwan, 1995

Margaux, 3rd Growth Classification

Margaux is the name of both a single great Château and the surrounding area, a sub-region of the Médoc renowned for producing the finest, most elegant wines of Bordeaux. In truth, many neighbouring Châteaux have under-performed. The vineyards of Chateau Kirwan lie on the Cantenac plateau, neighbouring Prieuré-Lichine and Desmirail. The soils here are sandy with gravel topsoil.
Grape Variety: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and, unusually, a high proportion (10%) of Petit Verdot; 18 months in oak (one third new)
Producer: A lesser-known and (hence) relatively good value Margaux estate,

Chateau Lafon Rochet, 1995

Saint-Estephe -MAGNUM 150cl (Comes in original case)

***92 Points, Robert M. Parker, Jr.***

The superb 1995 may be the finest wine Lafon-Rochet has ever made. It boasts an opaque black/purple, inky colour. This large-scaled, powerful, full-bodied wine will not win too many friends early in its life, but readers with youth and patience would be well-advised to lay away a case or two of this impressively extracted wine. The sweet tannin may become more integrated in less than 10 years. A very impressive, albeit brawny wine.

Chateau Pavie, 1995

St Emilion, Premier Grand Cru Classe

Medium plum/ruby in colour, with a distinctive peppery, leafy, spicy nose with vague hints of red cherry and currant fruit, this is a rigid, austere wine with an angular personality and severe tannin. There is some ripe fruit on the attack, but that is quickly dominated by the wine's structural components.

Chateau Poujeaux, 1995

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.

Chianti Classico, 1995

Ruffino - Riserva Ducale

Chianti, situated in Tuscany in central Italy, is home to probably the best-known and most iconic of all Italian wines.
The area’s most highly regarded wines come from the Chianti Classico zone which is the heartland of the Chianti wine region – its traditional and longest-established vinicultural area. This fame is due not just to the high quality of the wines, but also to the classico zone's iconic Tuscan landscape and wine making traditions. This Chianti is characterised by its red and black cherry character, intermingled with notes of wild herbs, mint and spice, supported by a racy acidity and mellow tannins.

Croft Port, 1995

Quinta do Roeda 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.

Krohn Port, 1995

Colheita single harvest port in individual wooden box

Wiese & Krohn is now run by the third generation of the Falcão Carneiro family. This small boutique Port House makes some terrific Late Bottled Vintage Port, in addition to Vintage Port but my favourite is the Colheitas.

A Colheita is a vintage tawny port. Tawny is lighter in colour and style than a traditional Vintage Port but if anything is even more delicious as it is a touch more elegant. They age beautifully too and represent great value.

Youthful, medium brick red. Lots of young plummy fruit aromas, as well as dried fruit, figs and nuts on the nose. Really smooth on the palate, silky and elegant in texture with balanced acidity, more dried fruit and spice notes.

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.
