1995 Dom Perignon Rose Brut Champagne         
Price: $675.00    Sale $550.00       9 bottles in stock

(95 points) The Dom Perignon Rose often does not perform well until around ten years of age, and the 1995 is revealing a bold, medium pink salmon color followed by broad berry notes intermixed with a smoky/earthy character. Rich, full-bodied, backward, and tannic, it should hit its peak in 2-3 years, and last for a decade thereafter. Readers should remember that the 1971 Dom Perignon Rose is still drinking exquisitely. I recently had the 1969 and 1970 Dom Perignons (from magnum), and both were drinking brilliantly. It makes one realize just how long-lived these wines can be.

1995 Domaine des Comtes Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Charmes    
price: $295.00    Sale $259.60       Quantity in Stock: 2

(97 points) Wonderful Meursault, as caressing and silky as they get. Refined yet extremely flavorful, silky but also vibrant, with deft use of toasted oak to give it a smoky, grilled character atop the pear, bread dough, butter and tropical flavors. Full-bodied, with an elegant, medium-intense finish that's not as oaky as Lafon's 1995 Perrières. (5/1998)  Wine Spectator

1995 Domaine Dujac Echezeaux Grand Cru
Price: $595.00    NA

(91 points) Dujac's light-colored wines are a testament to how much punch a deceptively shallow-looking Pinot Noir can deliver. The medium ruby-colored Echezeaux displays sweet, plummy fruits in the nose and an extremely refined, silky-textured, violet and cherry-filled, beautifully intense flavor profile. Elegant, this delicate gem should be at its best between 2004-2012. This note is the result of tastings I did in Burgundy between January 7 and January 29.

Dujac Clos De laroche 1995.jpg

1995 Domaine Dujac Clos de la Roche Grand Cru              
Price: $995.00    NA

(92 points) Domaine Dujac's finest wine in 1995 is the Clos De La Roche. It possesses powerful aromas of sweet black fruits. In the mouth, the wine explodes with dark berries, rocks, iron, and roasted spice, all embedded in this chewy, velvety-textured, medium-bodied wine. Possessing copious amounts of soft, ripe tannins, this feminine wine should be cellared for 8 years before enjoying it over the subsequent 7+. (PR) (6/1997)  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

1995 Mommessin Clos de Tart Grand Cru            
Price: $395.00    Sale $347.60       Quantity in Stock: 2

(92 points) Displaying a medium-to-dark ruby color and a lovely nose of spicy red berries, cracked black pepper, Asian spices, and distinctive notes of cedar, this is a medium-to-full-bodied, velvety-textured, and complex wine. Its enthralling flavor profile offers layers of rich black pepper-laced blueberries and blackberries that are intensely spiced with cinnamon, juniper berries, and hints of eucalyptus. (PR) (8/1998)  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

1995 Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Musigny Cuvée Vieilles Vignes  Grand Cru     
Price: $695.00    $611.60 Quantity in Stock: 1

(93-96 points) One of the greatest wines of the vintage, Vogue's Musigny Vieilles Vignes, reminded me of Chateau Margaux at its best: an iron fist in a velvet glove. How anything can be this massive, powerful, and robust and yet be strikingly elegant and refined. Possessing a dark ruby color and an amazingly spicy, floral (roses) and black fruit-filled nose, this stupendous Burgundy has a thick, almost viscous, velvety texture, with copious quantities of fat, chewy, red berries. Surprisingly, the fruit almost tastes stewed yet is perfectly and clearly delineated. Complex, intensely deep and buttressed with huge but ripe tannins, this wine should be at its plateau of maturity between 2006 and 2016. Bravo! (PR) (6/1997)  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
