Expert Reviews

(64% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 6% cab franc and 1% petit verdot) Good red-ruby color. Raspberry, redcurrant, tobacco leaf and flowers on the nose. Red-fruity and refined in the mouth, showing none of the smoke, animal or chocolate qualities I associate with this chateau. Distinctly delicate and fine, with moderate density and suave, building tannins. Incidentally, the IPT here is 68, compared to 73 in 2004. A wine of finesse: only time, and elevage, will tell if there's enough strength behind it. If there is, this 2005 will merit a score at the high end of my projected range.
