Description

I have for sale one bottle of Chateau Lafite 1995, which you will see from the pictures is in very good condition.

The cheapest you can buy this wine is £510 per bottle in the UK. I have therefore set a modest reserve for a wine that's drinking beautifully.

This wine averages 94.5 points on Cellartracker and has comfortably another decade in front of it.

Professional reviews:

'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. 95 points. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate February 1998'

'Blackish ruby with hardly any suggestion of ageing. That very refined lift of Lafite on the nose – oyster shells? Very elegant indeed – no dry tannins. Complete and with enough juice. A very fine Lafite. Lovely graphite finish – sinewy. No heaviness at all. And the tannins are SO well managed! 19 points. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com'

'Intense aromas of blackberries, black licorice and currants, with mineral undertones. Full-bodied, with a solid core of tannins and a long, silky finish. Still holding back, but is concentrated and powerful. The 1996 is always talked about, but I think this is superior and will be in the future.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2010. 20,000 cases made. 96 points. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 2007'
