1995 Les Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "...Attractive soft, round, medium to dark ruby-colored claret with herb, black cherry, and currant fruit notes. Lush, with some elegance, medium body, soft tannin, and an easy-going finish... (RP)" (2/1998) K&L Notes: Nice to see this familiar label taste so great. Nothing fancy, just straightforward delicious wine—ripe and fleshy cherry fruit and soft tannins. Don't underestimate this St-Estèphe made by Jean-Michel Cazes (of Lynch Bages and Pichon-Baron). (Nick Carpenter, K&L Wine Merchants)

1995 Calon-Ségur, St Estèphe

95 points Wine Spectator: "Incredible nose of crushed berries, flowers, spices and nuts. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Powerful and solid. Builds on the palate. Give it time. (Web Only-2007)"92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The wine is opaque purple-colored. With coaxing, the tight aromatics reveal some weedy cassis intertwined with truffles, chocolate, and beef blood-like aromas. On the palate, there is an element of sur-maturite (1995 was an extremely late harvest at Calon-Ségur), fabulous density and purity, and a boatload of tannin. This deep, broodingly backward, classic Bordeaux ...Read More »

1995 d'Angludet, Margaux

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1995 is a silky, supple, charming, forthcoming wine that is well above its cru bourgeois classification. The color is a healthy saturated deep ruby/purple, and the wine offers up gobs of jammy black fruits intermixed with subtle herbs, spice, and toast. In the mouth, the wine displays excellent richness, a layered, medium-bodied personality, well-disguised tannin and acidity, and a hedonistic mouthfeel. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. A sleeper of the vintage." (2/1998) Wine Spectator: "Refined, pretty '95. Currants, blackberries and green tobacco aromas. Medium-bodied ...Read More »

1995 Montrose, St-Estèphe Top Pick!
1995 Montrose, St-Estèphe

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An explosively rich, exotic, fruity Montrose, the 1995 displays even more fat and extract than the 1996. There is less Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1995 blend, resulting in a fuller-bodied, more accessible and friendlier style. The wine exhibits an opaque black/ruby/purple color, as well as a ripe nose of black fruits, vanillin, and licorice. Powerful yet surprisingly accessible (the tannin is velvety and the acidity low), this terrific example of Montrose should be drinkable at a young age. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2028."

1995 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

94 points Wine Spectator: "A wine that continues to improve with age. Shows loads of ripe plum, almost prune, with hints of vanilla and mineral. Full, chewy and tight. Still needs time.--Lynch-Bages non-blind vertical. Best after 2008. (Web Only-2007)" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A dense ruby/purple hue is accompanied by reticent, restrained aromatics suggesting earth, herbs and subtle fruit. The wine hits the palate with a brutal, tannic overlay, but behind that are impressive levels of black and red fruits. As is the case with many 1995s, the wine’s structural components still dominate, which makes one wonde ...Read More »

1995 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

Jancis Robinson: "Very bright crimson. Quite gamey and evolved on the nose. Lots of minerals there too. Not heavy. Quite delicate really. In that it’s a light-bodied but very evolved wine. A little drying on the end." (2/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine may merit an outstanding score after several more years in the bottle. Although it has closed down since bottling, it is an impressively endowed, rich, sweet cassis smelling and tasting Lafon-Rochet. The wine's impressively saturated deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by vanillin, earth, and spicy scents, medium to full body, excellent to ...Read More »

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a blend of 65% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot, and 5% cabernet franc; 12.6% alcohol): Medium red with an amber rim. Woodsy notes of spicecake and forest floor complicate redcurrant, tobacco, mocha, and smoke on the nose. Nicely concentrated and vibrant, with a cool, crisp quality to the clean flavors of red fruits, spices, and minerals. Builds nicely on the back end, finishing with smooth tannins and above-average length." (4/2013) Wine Spectator: "Offers more on the nose than the palate, yet it's delicious.

1995 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red-ruby color. Redcurrant, tobacco, smoked nuts and oak spice on the nose; less lively than the '96. Sweet entry, then firm and rather withdrawn. Gives an impression of higher acidity and less ripeness than the '96, but grew suppler and sweeter with aeration. Still, the tannins here are a bit more obtrusive. Finishes with notes of black cherry and herbs." (6/1998)

(Web 2007)"91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A massive wine, with a cigar box, chocolatey, thick, black currant and cherry-scented nose, this full-bodied wine is crammed with layers of fruit, extract, glycerin, and alcohol. Spicy yet rich, with high tannin, the 1995 Canon-La-Gaffeliere will need a minimum of 5-6 years of cellaring. The finish is long and rich, and the tan ...Read More »

Not giving away what it really has, but what classic potential. Best from 2003 through 2013." (9/1998)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An impressive Certan de May, the 1995 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, and a moderately intense nose of black olives, cedar, raspberries, and cherry fruit intermixed with toasty new oak. In the mouth, the new oak is noticeable, as is an elevated level of tannin. Notwithstanding the aggressive vanillin flavors and powerful tannin, ...Read More »

(1/2014)90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A stylish, elegant, more restrained style of Pichon Baron, with less obvious new oak than usual, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine offers a pure black currant-scented nose with subtle aromas of coffee and smoky toasty oak.

1995 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1995 Pichon-Lalande, Pauillac (96RP, 94WS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "What sumptuous pleasures await those who purchase either the 1996 or 1995 Pichon Lalande. It is hard to choose a favorite, although the 1995 is a smoother, more immediately sexy and accessible wine. It is an exquisite example of Pichon-Lalande with the Merlot component giving the wine a coffee/chocolatey/cherry component to go along with the Cabernet Sauvignon's and Cabernet Franc's complex blackberry/cassis fruit. The wine possesses an opaque black/ruby/purple color, and sexy, flamboyant aromatics of pain grille, black fruits, and cedar. Exquisite on the palate, this full-bodied, layered, multidimensional wine should prove to be one of the vintage's most extraordinary success stories. (RP)" (02/1998)

On the attack, it is staggeringly rich, yet displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe cassis fruit, the judicious use of toasty new oak, and a thrilling mineral character intertwined with the high quality of fruit routinely obtained by Las Cases, make this a compelling effort."

A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass.

Opulent, with forward aromatics (gobs of black fruits intermixed with toasty pain grille scents and a boatload of spice), this terrific Cos possesses remarkable intensity, full body, and layers of jammy fruit nicely framed by the wine's new oak.
