1995 CHÂTEAU HAUT BRION 1995

At Château Haut Brion, 1995 was an early year. The summer was characterized by very high temperatures and the absence of rain. The result is a perfectly ripe and healthy harvest.
Lots of tannic structure in the Haut Brion 1994. The tannin is very present but very melted. The aromas dominate the first nose. In the mouth, a lot of volume, a lot of concentration too. It is a long-keeping bottle.

Expert's opinions

96 / 100
Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider
 The more I taste this wine, the more I like it. This is one of the few 95s that do not typify the austerity of the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated and aromatic, with a nose of smoke, cigar wrapper, burning forest leaves, and currants, the is loaded with fresh currants, herbs, cedar, and tobacco on the palate. You find good length and energy making you want to enjoy another sniff and sip. Drink from 2022-2050.

 Similarly dense, slightly darker and more opaque. More restrained on the nose at first with intense, deep, tight aromas of black-skinned fruits: notes of damson, black cherry and blackcurrant and a tiny coffee note. The palate has fine depth, it is earthy, smoky and rich. There is a liquoricy darkness, but from the fruit, not oak, a cherry-skin bitterness and lots of firm, dry, chewy tannins. Good acidity, with a long, sweetly-fruited, finely-balanced finish despite the power and obvious ripeness and concentration. One of my favourite's of the night.

Robert PARKER - The Wine Advocate
 The 1995 Haut Brion has a gorgeous bouquet: less opulent than the bottle encountered in March 2011, here offering a more sedate, but somehow "languid" bouquet of tertiary black fruit, cigar box and autumn leaves that are all beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, open for business with fine tension shimmering throughout. It does not quite possess the breeding or clinical focus of the 1996, but it is a generous Haut-Brion, rounded in texture with Morels and tobacco lining the finish. I would broach bottles of the 1995 before reaching for the 1996.

 Tightly wound, reserved Haut-Brion that has classic cedar, tobacco and earthy flavors. Dense and plush on the palate with a lingering finish.

 Just lovely wine, and the only one that was not dominated by a single variety, being a Cabernet/Merlot blend. Excellent lustrous, nuanced ruby.. Clearly a very fine mature wine. Strong liquorice notes (Haut-Brion 'warm bricks' earthiness?) For a second I wondered if it was a 1998 Hermitage.  Very complex. Spread across the palate.

 Dark color, of medium intensity and evolved. Very aromatic nose, with ripe fruitiness that comes from Merlot. Shades of cedar. Pleasant mouthfeel, unfolding too quickly. Feeling of fluidity. Average length. Surprising result for this renowned vintage.

Château Haut Brion
Château Haut Brion

It was in 1855 that Château Haut Brion was honored with the highest distinction of Médoc wines: Premier Cru Classé (First Growth). Château Haut Brion is the only non-Médoc domain to be included in the Médoc wine list, as well as the Graves wine classification as a Classified Growth!

Its soil is similar to elsewhere as a brother of Latour. Without being the most concentrated, Haut Brion is the most noble of wines from Pessac-Leognan and its longevity is unparalleled in the industry. The silky tannins are always exceptional. Chateau Haut-Brion is the oldest and yet the smallest of vineyards classified as Premiers Grands Crus in 1855 (Château Lafite-RothschildChâteau LatourChâteau MargauxChâteau Mouton RothschildChâteau Haut-Brion)

Although the vineyard has been active in the region since at least Roman times, the first mention of vineyards of Haut-Brion dates back only to 1423. In the early days, the wines were known by the name of the parishes where they came from. In the case of Haut-Brion, under the leadership of Pontac, the wine first bore the name of this noble and respectable family. Haut Brion was founded in 1525 by Jean de Pontac and since famous people have succeeded. The last of them, Clarence Douglas Dillon, was Minister of Finance of the United States under the Kennedy administration. As its reputation grew, the name of the estate came to replace that of its owners. The concept of Grand Cru is born! We find the first mention in the diary of Samuel Pepys, who wrote April 10, 1663: "I just tasted a French wine called Ho-Bryan (sic) which has the best and most special taste I've ever enountered."

Among the many great vintages of Château Haut Brion, the exceptional vintages are 1926, 1945, 1953, 1959, 1961, 1982, 1990, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000.
