1995 Wine and Port Vintage
Vintage Port: The 1995 port wine vintage is rated as very good. 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 Quintas with concentrated, fruity and well-structured ports. The 1995 port vintage also offers plenty of good examples of barrel aged (tawny) port from established producers such as Kopke, Messias, Barros and Krohn that would offer exceptional drinking today, making these excellent 26 year old wine gifts for a 26th birthday or 26th anniversary celebration.
Italian: The 1995 wine vintage in Italy is generally rated as good. Although it was overshadowed by the exceptional vintages that followed. The vintage produced consistent wines - the best examples from Tuscany and Piedmont are now at the peak of their maturity.
Bordeaux: The 1995 wine vintage produced consistent Bordeaux wines that reached full maturity by 2012. Superb weather in 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Spain: The 1995 vintage for Spain was an 'Excelente' vintage with what was then (although superseded in 1996, then '97 and '98) the biggest harvest of all time. This was the second 5-star year vintage in a row.

Ryst-Dupeyon Armagnac, 1995
Ryst Dupeyron Reserve Joseph Millesime vintage Armagnac
The 1995 Dupeyron Armagnac is the expression of a single year and has a unique character associated with the year and the cask in which it has been stored. These vintages are bottled at the alcohol level in which they naturally come out of the cask. There is a wonderful contrast between the sweet and sour flavours of wood, amplified by the strong alcoholic degree. Rich palate feeling the alcohol and the concentration of dry plums, spicy with persistent flavour of rancio and of spices, but round, soft and long in the finish. The tannins are very present, but full-bodied and round.
The Maison Ryst-Dupeyon was founded by Joseph Dupeyron in 1905. …
