International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($125-$190; 13.8% natural alcohol) Bright ruby-red. Superripe berry and chocolate aromas, with a whiff of surmaturite Fat, sweet and large-scaled, offering extraordinary volume and an almost syrupy thickness leavened by surprisingly sound acidity. This saturates the entire mouth yet manages to avoid coming off as heavy. Finishes very long and sweet, with thoroughly integrated tannins. "The best vintage since 1961," notes Jean-Luc Zuger. "This is the kind of wine I like." He advises early drinkers to give this 2005 about four hours in a decanter.

Tight closed yet typical bordeaux nose. Still quite young but good structure, firm yet closed tannins, would wait at least another 5 years and cassis and sour cherry will come out. Rating should go up with maturation.
