1995 Wine and Port Vintage

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Spain: Rioja; The 1995 wine vintage was an 'Excelente' vintage with what was (then - superseded in 1996 and again in 1997 and 1998) the biggest harvest of all time and the second 5-star year vintage in a row.

Chateau Ducru Beaucaillou, 1995

St Julien 2nd Growth Classification

*** 94 Points Robert Parker ***

This wine is of first-growth quality, not only from an intellectual perspective, but in its hedonistic characteristics. More open-knit and accessible than the extraordinary 1996, Ducru's 1995 exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color, followed by a knock-out nose of blueberry and black raspberry/cassis fruit intertwined with minerals, flowers, and subtle toasty new oak. Like its younger sibling, the wine possesses a sweet, rich mid-palate (from extract and ripeness, not sugar), layers of flavor, good delineation and grip, but generally unobtrusive tannin and acidity.

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.

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)

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.

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.

Graham Port, 1995

Malvedos Single Quinta Vintage Port

Reviews:“Seductively perfumed with blackberry and spice, this is subtle, yet richly concentrated… with just enough age for the tannins to have softened to smooth velvet”.
Anthony Rose , The Independent
20/12/2003

“…this is magnificent stuff with a highly bred sense of its class, showing complex hedgerow berries and gripping tannins that mitigate, beautifully, the sweetness in a way that makes the liquid dangerously seductive…”.

Messias Port, 1995

Colheita Single Harvest

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.

Osborne Port, 1995

New

Vintage Port

This house was one of only a few that declared '95 a vintage year, but the proof is in the bottle: the decision was a good one. There's tons of stuffing and structure here, and it's just starting to come around to show defined plum, licorice and coffee flavors. It's a tad hot on the finish, but that should fade if given another 10 years in the cellar.

Really nice, excellent condition.
