One of the cleanest and freshest wines of the vintage, Margaux is immediately vinous, its plump fruit in harmony with the influence of oak. The combination of superripe fruit and new French oak makes it seem like a rich Napa Valley cabernet at first; as it develops over the course of several days, it continues to grow more profound and sophisticated. Massive in size, the fragrant, luscious fruit retains freshness with air; it has so much puppy fat that it is impossible to perceive the details of its structure. It is, however, resistant to oxygen and impressively long, two factors that imply a long life ahead. A delicious vintage of Margaux.

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. Fabulo... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

An extravagantly ripe vintage of Margaux, this has the first-grown scent of a wine at home in its new oak. The texture is succulent and generous, the aromas bright with floral tones and sweet fruit, a taste of fresh strawberries and blackberries macerated in liqueur. This is a beautiful wine, and it may reveal more of its structural power with time.

Bright ruby-red. Boysenberry, minerals, espresso and sexy oak on the nose. Wonderfully concentrated flavors of berries and espresso, with perfect integration of the new oak. But a bit youthfully rigid today owing to its penetrating acids. This impressively dense wine from a very cool summer has filled in nicely during its elevage but will require a good 10 or 12 years for its firm acids and tight tannins to soften. Very long and subtle on the aftertaste.

If a wine can ever be perfect, this is as perfect as a wine can get. Right from the beginning this was the wine of the vintage, and nothing has changed. Margaux was the last of the first growths to be bottled because it just needed that extra time in barrel. The wine now has huge, intense black cherry and blackberry fruits, and marvelous tannins that are sweet and powerful. To finish, the magnificent Margaux perfume of sandalwood and ripe fruit dominates, leaving an impression of finesse and power.

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 inter... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1995 Margaux, Chateau 750ml

Ultraconcentrated, with layers and layers of fruit and superfine tannins. Plenty of fruit, mineral and meat character. Full-bodied yet refined and classy, it coats your palate with gorgeous fruit and ripe tannins. Truly superb. One of the wines of the vintage. Best after 2012.
