Winemaker's Notes

From the early summer until the end of the crop, a truly great vintage. The wine already shows its distinctive characteristics: power, depth, complexity, but also dedicacy, subtlety and harmony. With its concentrated structure, 1995 recalls the 1986, while its elegance and charm remind us of the 1990. Perhaps a perfect compromise?

Critical Acclaim

"Medium garnet colour going brick at the rim. The nose is beginning to showing signs of evolution with aromas of leather, game, warm cassis, dried plums and cloves. Medium to high acidity, medium body and medium to firm, fine tannins support earthy, blackcurrant-preserve fruit. Long finish."
95 Points

"Excellent deep ruby color. Very complex aromas of blackcurrant, wild plum, violets, minerals, tar and smoky oak. Dense and supple, with great sweetness of fruit. Doesn't have quite the sheer power of the '96, but the flavors build and build. Substantial tannins are chewier than those of the '96 but hit the palate later. 1986 was the vintage with the highest level of polyphenols ever recorded at this estate, but '95 was the runner-up, according to Pontallier. Because this big, tannic wine needed longer barrel aging, it was bottled later than normal, in November of '97.

Rating: 94+ Points"
