Wine vintage rating 1995

What was the vintage 1995 like?

1995 After a few difficult years, 1995 finally turned out to be a very good vintage, which in the meantime has exceeded the expectations placed in it. The 1er Grand Cru Classé wines do very well (but you have to take into account that many of the best wines have not yet reached the end of their development.
Very soft, balanced vintage in Burgundy.
In Italy (Piedmont and Tuscany) there was a rather strange weather pattern. A warm spring was followed by a moderate summer, and the finale was a long, almost summery autumn. The grapes were therefore harvested very late.

Weather in the year 1995

At the beginning of the year there was a lot of precipitation. Spring turned warm - with a week-long heat wave in May followed by frosty nights in Burgundy.

The summer got very hot. Several waves with high temperatures followed one another. Occasional thunderstorms occurred in August and September.

Autumn and October remained warm like summer.

Good filling levels, good wine quality

The fill level of an old vintage wine reveals important information on the drinkability of the wine.
Of course, the good condition of a wine from an old vintage depends on excellent storage. Above all, the wine must not have frequently changed cellars. Ideally, the wine will have rested in one and the same wine cellar.

But also the cork that sits in each individual bottle is very important. A perfect cork has few pores and keeps the wine stable. If an inferior cork happens to have been used in a bottle, the porous surface will begin to soak up wine and allow micro-quantities of the liquid to evaporate over the decades. Poor fill levels are the result.

A poor fill level therefore also indicates a high risk that the wine bottle could soon begin to leak.

The fill levels explained:
In the bottle neck (high fill to base neck) about 2 cm is perfect for wines.
Top and upper shoulder, ([very] top shoulder), approx. 3 cm is very good for very old wines.
Medium shoulder (mid shoulder), about 4 cm is only acceptable for rare top wines and in individual cases.
Everything below the red line should not be offered any more.

Wine rating

Do you have a 1995 vintage in your wine cellar and would you like to know how much it is worth?

Here are a few tips: in order to still have any value, the bottle must be leakproof. The wine must not be cloudy. It should be of good quality (not supermarket wine).

Search for the wine online without specifying the vintage. If it is a well-known winery, you will find the wine immediately and also the price you have to pay for the current vintage. If the current wine costs from EUR 20.00 upwards, that's a good sign.

The filling level is decisive for the value. Upper shoulder to base neck is required.
