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 ?

Wine Spectator"Wine of the vintage and the greatest Château Margaux ever produced. A stunning red. The essence of raspberry, violet and berry, with hints of vanilla and toasted oak. Full-bodied and thick, yet racy, with masses of tannins and a harmonious structure. Long, long finish. Best after 2005. 18,000 cases made." (JS)

Wine Advocate"Bottled very late (November, 1997), the 1995 has continued to flesh out, developing into one of the great classics made under the Mentzelopoulos regime. The color is opaque ruby/purple. The nose offers aromas of licorice and sweet smoky new oak intermixed with jammy black fruits, licorice, and minerals. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with extraordinary richness, fabulous equilibrium, and hefty tannin in the finish. In spite of its large size and youthfulness, this wine is user-friendly and accessible. This is a thrilling Margaux that will always be softer and more evolved than its broader-shouldered sibling, the 1996. How fascinating it will be to follow the evolution of both of these vintages over the next half century. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2040."
