Robert Parker 87-88
Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.
Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016
Leather, blackcurrant, cassis, menthol and cedarwood. Very savoury. Still very dense on the palate, with plenty of development to come, especially on the rather closed nose. (RH)
