  • I have had other vintages of this wine and really love it. The '05 needs more time which is why I gave it a low score. It is better on night 2, but the fruit is being held back. IMHO the only '05's that should be consumed now are those that cost less than $20. This is the problem with Bordeaux wines from a good vintage ----- it takes 12 to 13 years post vintage until they can be consumed. I think the 2000's are just now loosening up.

  • Bit disappointing

  • Rather pleased with this having such ups and downs with other vintages. 2 hour decant seemed to open it up nicely. Bright fruit, tannin and acid. Everything really seemed to flow together until about the 4 hour mark when the tannins took over. Thankfully it was just about finished by then. Great QPR.

  • A nice smooth wine. A bit generic, this doesn't really scream of place. I'm surprised it's not more modern. Nice balance of darkish fruit and fine structure with some herbal notes. This is drinking fine but could continue to improve and hold for some years, no rush to drink. Very nice but not memorable. Good quality for the price. Took a while to open up.

  • Needs a bit of time to open up. So much better than the last one I had which was five years ago. This is very inviting, lovely soft minerality, in many ways like Le Petite Haut Lafitte. May benefit from more time still. The fruit is a bit subdued - more of a wine for seasoned Bordeaux lovers. Not as good on the 2nd day.
