Description

No reserve on this auction.

A lesser known St Emilion from the great 2005 vintage. This is merlot dominant and ready to drink from about now.

Stephen Tanzer’s early note from 2008:

“Deep red. Sweet aromas of cherry, currant and marzipan. Nicely sweet and silky in the mouth, with slight medicinal fruit flavors framed by harmonious acidity, which gives the wine lovely inner-mouth perfume. Finishes with good breadth and sweet tannins.”

Some much morerecent reviews on Cellartracker:

Bordeaux classique rendu à maturité. Bonne franchise des saveurs, typiquement bordeaux traditionnel longueur et persistance moyennes. Se dirige vers le développement d’arômes tertiaires, à boire sans tarder pour profiter de ce qui lui reste de jeunesse. Satisfaisant.

Nice round and easy to drink.

15 plus years ahead of it if you treat it right, dark green herbs wrapped in graphite and black fruit. Serve with meats and Gouda.
