95 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged for 22 months in 100% new oak (55% French and 45% American), the 1995 Cabernet Sauvignon Private Reserve Georges de Latour has a medium to deep brick color with expressive dried blackberries, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis notes plus hints of cigar box, bouquet garni and coffee beans. Full-bodied (the alcohol is 13.9%), concentrated, firm and grainy, the palate delivers loads of relatively youthful fruit, with seamless freshness, finishing long and spicy.
93 Points, Wine Spectator
Really fruity, with an abundance of raspberry, violet and berry character. Full-bodied, with a velvety tannin structure and a long berry and toasted oak aftertaste. The oak is a bit dominant, so give it time to mellow.–Georges de Latour Private Reserve vertical. Best after 2004.
