Very youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made. — JM

It's matured beautifully with 22 years now under its belt. It has a highly spiced nose of star anise, incense, raspberry and poached strawberry. It's beginning to show its age on the palate and is decidedly mellow, its alcohol starting to appear a little raised. It's full-bodied and flowing in the mouth, with good acidity and some very fine tannins still remaining. Spicy notes help maintain freshness on the finish, and although it's fraying slightly at the edges as it approaches the end of its long life, it still has pleasure to give. Time to start drinking up, but there's no immediate rush if it's been stored in good conditions.

Still closed and tannic the 1995 requires an additional 5-6 years of cellaring. It should keep well through 2020.

(92+ points) While the ’96 seems ready to go, this bottle of 1995 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape started open and lush but slowly firmed up, presenting an almost clean, civilized bouquet of earthy black cherry, truffle, roasted meats, and a touch of tobacco. I love the clarity and focus on the nose. The palate follows suit with medium body, plenty of ripe fruit, a smooth, balanced character and a classy finish. After a less than stellar showing by a recent bottle, this reaffirms my belief that this has a long life ahead of it. Will it improve? I don’t know and it’s certainly delicious now. I would hold bottles for another 2 to 3 years and then drink over the following decade.

Tight, required extensive effort to find the aromatics. Still tannic and on the austere, or severe side of the style range. With a few hours of air, the wine softened and showed ample, spicy, red berries, but it never... Tight, required extensive effort to find the aromatics. Still tannic and on the austere, or severe side of the style range. With a few hours of air, the wine softened and showed ample, spicy, red berries, but it never softened. Fans of old school, less than ripe wines will probably enjoy this a lot more than I did.
