What is the quality of the 1995 vintage? 

Generally, it was a very great vintage, less valued than it should in his younger years. However, the investors of the time were rewarded by the increase in quality of the vintage after about fifteen years! The wine opened, reminding all the greatest amateurs that the 1995 needed time to become a very big one.

  • RATING OF THE 1995 VINTAGE IN THE RHÔNE : 5/5

Exceptional vintage. Hermitage holds an elite level on this vintage. Also remember the great wines of the Côte-rôtie appellation! Tannic and powerful red wines. Some wines are comparable to the great 1990. We also find excellent Gigondas on this vintage.

  • RATING OF THE 1995 VINTAGE AT BORDEAUX  : 4/5

Bordeaux had a very good vintage in 1995. Great wines fill themselves wonderfully with a fleshy richness that was perhaps lacking in their youth. As they mature, they become more and more interesting and worth buying. At twenty years old, they are really starting to express themselves and have become a very interesting proposition.

  • RATING OF THE 1995 VINTAGE IN BURGUNDY : 4/5

A small harvest of high quality for a long aging. As in 1985, the acidity of white wines is hidden behind the ripe fruit. Early frost and cool weather in June significantly reduced the size of the 1995 harvest. July and August were clear, dry and hot, but cooler conditions arrived in September, bringing showers and overcast sky. Fortunately, the rains were more dispersed and did not cause as much damage as in 1994. The harvest took place in cool but dry weather. Careful selection was essential. The wines of 1995 showed great potential in barrel,
