A tannins laden tasting of the 05 and 06 bordeaux through mostly classed growths.
A lot of really exceptional wines among the 05s with quite a number being extremely tannic for long term cellaring. Not easy to taste but I particularly enjoy tasting the Margaux which were mostly quite ready for business though might not have the same potential as its neighbours. Overall, I thought good to excellent wines were well spread out across all regional appellations and across whites, reds and sweets. What a vintage! Just pray that the prices come back down.
Just a notch below the 2005 vintage in general but still a very consistently well performing vintage. Again, the good wines were well spread out over various regional appellations and varietals.
A smattering of aged wines that was very enjoyable to taste through.
