WS 97: This is like a genie in the bottle. Fascinating yet subtle aromas of blackberry, minerals, fresh flowers and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with wonderful layers of ultrafine tannins. It coats your mouth and tantalizes your palate. A gorgeous thing all around. (JS, Web Only-2007) 

RP 96: It is interesting how this wine continues to evolve. Unquestionably one of the vintage's superstars, the 1995 Pétrus is taking on a personality similar to the extraordinarily backward, muscular 1975. This is not a Pétrus that can be approached in its youth (i.e., the perfect duo of 1989 and 1990). The wine exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color, followed by a knock-out nose of pain grille, jammy black fruits, and roasted coffee. On the palate, it possesses teeth-staining extract levels, massive body, and rich, sweet black fruits buttressed by powerful, noticeable tannin. A formidably endowed wine with layers of extract, this is a huge, tannic, monstrous-sized Pétrus that will require a minimum of 10 years of cellaring. Forget all the nonsense about Merlot producing sweet, soft, ready to drink wines, because low yielding, old Merlot vines made in the way of Petrus and other top Pomerols frequently possess as much aging potential as any great Cabernet Sauvignon-based wine in the world. Look for the 1995 Pétrus to last for 50+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2050. (RP)   (2/1998)

VM 96: Tasted at the Pomerol Comparative Exploration tasting in London, the 1995 Petrus is a vintage that I had not tasted for several years. Now just over 20 years old, it continues to cruise at a high level. The nose is very "cool" and refined. There remains plenty of black fruit on the nose, quite savoury in style to such an extent that blind, I was certain it contained some Cabernet Franc and was therefore Lafleur! The palate is extremely well balanced with superb density, wonderful structure and crescendo of flavours. There is a touch of hung game towards the finish, dried blood and sage, the aftertaste ridiculously long. It has reached its drinking plateau, although on this showing, it is going to be a very long plateau. Divine. (NM)   (2/2018)
