Few 2005 Bordeaux before my Bordeaux tasting on Sunday; 9/14/2013-9/20/2013: A blend of 55% Merlot and 45 % Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark garnet, showing aromas of dark cherry, rose petal, mineral and forest floor. Rather lean on the palate, blackcurrant, cherry and mineral. Tart acidity with soft medium length. This bottle is disappointing compared to my last tasting 2-3 years back and did not live up to the reputation of a combination of the Crus Bourgeois estate and great vintage. But at this price point it does not have much to lose.
