About this Item

Châteauneuf-du-Pape, 1995

Unusually all 13 permitted grape varieties are grown, although it is Mourvèdre often makes up a third of the final blend. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape is renowned to age extremely well for a number of decades. ECOCERT certification from Beaucastel Rouge, Organic and Biodynamic practices since 1974. 

Critics Ratings

‘Very youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish. Drink now through 2025.’ - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 95/100 (Mar 2006)

‘The classic 1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape will require discipline. Like most top vintages of Beaucastel, a decade of patience will be warranted before this wine will be enjoyable to drink. It exhibits a deep dark ruby/purple color, and a provocative aromatic profile of animal fur, tar, truffles, black cherries, cassis, licorice, and minerals. A medium to full-bodied wine, with a boatload of tannin, considerable grip and structure, and a weighty feel in the mouth, this appears to be a classic vin de garde made in the style of the 1978 Beaucastel (which is still not close to full maturity). Prospective purchasers over the age of forty should be buying this wine for their children.’ - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 93/100 (Oct 1997)
