Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate
95

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.

On the nose, one can immediately detect the greater percentage of Merlot in the blend: more red fruits evident with touches of kirsch and cranberry, evolving a slight cooked meat aroma in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied, quite backward, with firm tannins, very seductive and intense. Lovely fleshy middle redolent of the -85 with a savoury aspect embellishing the finish that has a slight semblance to a Cabernet Franc based Saint Emilion. Very intellectual - it deserves another 8-10 years in bottle. Edging closer in quality to the 1996 but a different creature. Drink 2015-2035+ Tasted March 2008.

This still broods seriously, with dark plum, currant and blackberry fruit, studded with charcoal, singed tobacco and cedar notes and backed by a serious grip of roasted earth. The gorgeously long finish is driven by old-school tannins, with the smoldering edge going on and on. A brick house of a Margaux, with more charcoal than graphite, more austerity than elegance and more power than refinement.--Non-blind Château Margaux vertical (December 2013). Drink now through 2034.

Dark color. Black licorice, coffee, currants and black olives. Complex nose. A full-bodied, chewy blockbuster of a wine that is not giving anything at all away. It is like buried treasure still; you have to search for the gold. And it's there. Fabulous. Please give this time.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2014. (Wine Spectator)
