Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.

Plautus

 

We like sweet words but we like wine better and this is the second time we had this Bordeaux Magnum party on the calendar of events so hopefully this time we have 10-12 people who want to party with us next Friday night September 14th- and if you can’t make it I have included all of the magnums that we have in the store so you can have your own magnum party!!

 

The 1995 vintage was the first very good vintage that the critics had to talk about in the 1990's and many of the wines are now just now starting to reach its peak years of drinking pleasure.  Most of the top wines from 1995 are still babies and will need another couple of decades to be really drinking at their best.

 

This is true scientific research that we are doing here at the Wine Watch, checking each bottle to see when the best time to consume for the most drinking pleasure.  It's hard word but we are willing to sacrifice our body for our wine drinking people.  These wines are all being served out of Magnum format, so you will have plenty of each wine and the wines out of magnum are always fresher and have more aging potential. 

This tasting is a pre-poured sit-down event and is limited to 12 tasters.  The price for this tasting is $225 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com

1995 Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere Saint Emilion Magnum

 

(95 Points) Shows such wonderful clarity and class on the nose, with crushed raspberries, blackberries and just a hint of flowers. Full-bodied, with layers of ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic...Wine Spectator

 

1995 Chateau Gazin Pomerol Magnum

(90 Points) This deep ruby/purple-colored wine has shut down following bottling, and while it hints at some of its exotic grilled herb and meat-like character, the reluctant nose reveals primarily new oak, smoke, spice, and background jammy fruit. On the palate, the wine is deep, medium to full-bodied, refined, and except for some noticeably hard tannin in the finish, relatively seamless. This expansively-flavored wine offers plenty of spice, new oak, fruit, and depth. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2018.  Wine Advocate

 

1995 Chateau Branaire Ducru Saint Julien Magnum 

(90 Points) A beauty in the elegant, restrained, finesse school of winemaking, the dark ruby/purple-colored 1995 Branaire exhibits a floral, cranberry, cherry, and black currant-scented nose intermixed with high quality toasty new oak. Medium-bodied, with excellent definition, supple tannin, and an attractive, alluring personality, this pleasant, measured yet complex wine should drink well young, and keep for two decades. Wine Advocate

 

 

1995 Chateau Pontet Canet Pauillac Magnum

(94 Points)  This is the best Pontet-Canet I have ever tasted. Dark ruby-colored, offering berry, raspberry and dark chocolate character. Full-bodied and very fruity, with big, velvety tannins. A glorious red, this goes on and on on the palate, displaying wonderful structure and fruit. 23,000 cases made.
Drink Dates: 2002+  Wine Spectator

 

1995 Chateau Margaux Margaux MAGNUM

(95 Points) 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 intermixed with jammy black fruits, licorice, and minerals. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with extraordinary richness, fabulous equilibrium, and hefty tannin in the finish. In spite of its large size and youthfulness, this wine is user-friendly and accessible. This is a thrilling Margaux that will always be softer and more evolved than its broader-shouldered sibling, the 1996. How fascinating it will be to follow the evolution of both of these vintages over the next half century. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2040. Wine Advocate # 115, Feb 1998

 

There are only 12 spaces available for this tasting, the fee is $225 per person + tax and this includes dinner!
