Surely Bordeaux’s vintage of the century so far. The 2005's were chock full of everything - fruit, acidity, colour and tannin.
The grapes were of exceptional maturity with the ratio of solids to juice higher than usual, yielding wines of exceptional concentration. Moreover the wines possess exceptional balance combining natural richness with refreshing acidity.
The tannins possess a silky texture on the palate with no hint of aggression or austerity.
The combination of excellent maturity, correct acidity and ripe tannins produced wines of exceptional quality.
A sheer joy and available now
