2005 is considered to be one of the best Bordeaux vintages of the century. The conditions were close to perfect and the wines are known for their consistency and balance.
62% Cabernet Sauvignon & 38% Merlot
Wonderful high-toned aromas & flavors of plum, blackberry, cassis, violets and truffles. On the palate it is full-bodied with some earthy minerality, tobacco and smoke to round out the fruit flavors. The finish is very long and the tannins are round.
Drink now through 2030 and decant 30 minutes before consuming.
Enjoy with some gouda or Fennel-Rubbed Leg of Lamb with Salsa Verde.
