(1995 Vintage) From the early summer until the end of the crop, a truly great vintage. The wine already shows its distinctive characteristics: power, depth, complexity, but also dedicacy, subtlety and harmony. With its concentrated structure, 1995 recalls the 1986, while its elegance and charm remind us of the 1990. Perhaps a perfect compromise?
Wine Advocate(1996 Vintage) Concentrated, Cassis, Cedar, Full-bodiedWine Advocate - 1st Growth, Margaux, Bordeaux, France "One of the great classics produced under the Mentzelopoulos regime. In many respects, it is the quintessential Ch Margaux, combining measured power, extraordinary elegance, and admirable complexity."Featuring pure notes of black fruits and violets.
