  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    ($35-$40) Good medium-deep red. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, minerals, tobacco, coffee and cedary oak. Sweet and opulent, with inviting coffee and mocha tones carrying through on the palate. Finishes with sweet tannins and good mellow length. This shut down in the glass, suggesting that it will need at least several years of aging.

    Firm, with blackberry, cedar and sweet tobacco character. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long, slightly chewy finish.

    Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.

    Very dark - St-milion colour! A bit exaggerated and with very drying tannins on the finish. Right-bank style.

    Somewhat lackluster but supple with generous, silky fruit. Does not show Margaux typicity, but okay, regardless. Won't buy again. Drink all bottles by end of 2016.

Located in the southwest of France, Bordeaux is the single largest fine-wine-producing region in the world, with more than 15,000 growers spread over 57 appellations and more than 700 million bottles produced annually. The region boasts a two-thousand-year winemaking history and some of the wine world's most recognized and highly sought-after names. Red Bordeaux blends comprise eighty percent of production, but dry and sweet whites are also well-known. The region is divided into the Left and Right Banks (of the Dordogne River); Cabernet Sauvignon prevails in the former and Merlot in the latter.
