A very hot summer, with quite a bit of rainfall during the vintage. However the grapes were extremely healthy and mostly harvested in good condition.
1995 is regarded as the best vintage since 1990, it is a vintage every claret lover should acquire for future drinking. The Petit Chateaux are most attractive with lovely ripe fruit flavours showing great charm. Overall the quality is very high with plenty of fruit and soft tannins. A classic vintage, we recommend to drink before the 1996 vintage.
