A semi blind tasting of bordeaux 2005s. List of wines known but all wines tasted blind in 6 flights with results announced only at the end. Tasting notes and scores were given without prejudices and before results of wines were announced. In general, good fruit quality throughout regardless of appellation or classe. A suprise with the Haut Brion and over delivery of quality by some underrated ones. A spectacular vintage all in all if not for the steep prices.
Wines listed in order of tasting.
Overall, great quality again. The fruits and tannins show . Big ripe fruits given the perfect weather. Not suprised some lots of winemakers took out their newest oak barrels for it but the ones that did well were those that kept it harmonious with a wise amount of oak. As with the vintage , most were tannic. I suspect that in another ferw years if I do drink these wines again, most would score 1 -2 points well above the current score.
