The 1995 Lafite-Rothschild (only one-third of the harvest made it into the final blend) is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc. The wine was showing spectacularly well when I tasted it in November, 1997. It exhibits a dark ruby purple color, and a sweet, powdered mineral, smoky, weedy cassis-scented nose. Beautiful sweetness of fruit is present in this medium-bodied, tightly-knit, but gloriously pure, well-delineated Lafite. The 1995 is not as powerful or as massive as the 1996, but it is beautifully made with outstanding credentials, in addition to remarkable promise. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2028. Robert Parker

Fave of many at the table, fell a bit flat for me. Great, classic cigar-box followed by a beautiful layering of black and blue fruit, black tea. Somehow just way flatter than the Margaux on the mid and back palate.

Surprisingly youthful, with plenty of fruit and rounding tannins.

How can you go wrong with a 95 Lafitte!

Good depth, nice but fading fruit. Forest floor, earthy, a hint of cigar box. A little past its prime but a great example of a well aged 1995 pauillac.
