A small crop of high quality for long ageing. As in 1985, the acidity in the white wines is hidden behind the ripe fruit.
An early frost and cool June weather severely reduced the size of the 1995 crop. July and August were fine, dry and warm, but cooler conditions arrived in September, bringing showers and overcast skies. Fortunately the rains were more spread out and did not do as much damage as in 1994. The harvest took place in cooler but dry weather. Careful selection was essential. The 1995 wines showed great potential in barrel, the silky tannins and fine acidity giving the wines a soft mouthfeel.
Very attractive white wines, with creamy structure balanced by fine-tuned acidity.
