2005 Bordeaux

Château Léoville Barton

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

2005 vintage. Just puttering along…tea, coffee grounds, ripe cherry…don’t see this getting any better but should be able to hold current course for quite some time. Light/light-medium body and speed bump free with a nice smoky, graphite nose. — 4 days ago

Tronquoy de Lalande Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Mellow half bottle and some frosé waiting for porchetta https://m.klwines.com/p/i?i=1465099 — 5 days ago

Château Belle-Vue

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Toujours bon, même avec 16 ans en bouteille. Ne montre pas de signe d’évolution évidente à l’oeil mais on le perçoit en bouche avec des arômes tertiaires, champignons, feuilles mortes, encore un peu de fruits routes, tabac, boite à cigare — a month ago

Château Fombrauge

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

Purchased 8 cases of this on release. Amazing QPR at $32 drinking well showing lots of berry , cassis fruits, leather, vanilla spice, mocha & tobacco. Still youthful with many years left to drink the remaining 54 btls. 😜 — 2 days ago

Château La Vieille Cure

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So impressed by the quality here. These are hidden gems to my palate that really shine with some age. This shows cigar tobacco, wet leaves, cocoa and plenty of tertiary complexity while retaining freshness with vibrant black fruit, acid and mellow tannins. Thankfully the critics never seem to pick up on this (though JR nailed it with a 17/20), and it unbelievably still retails for around $30. This is in its prime and I expect will drink well for another 10 years at least. — a month ago

I had a number of 1997’s of this late. A good wine & value in 97’s courtesy of Clyde Beffa. 2005 such a splendid vintage and still youthful.

Decanted around 11:45a today, poured around 8:30p with an Allen Brothers Ribcap and it is simply velvet in the mouth.

Recent spilt auction purchase with
@Paul T- Huntington Beach for $35-$36 a bottle…in OWC. From the same Technical Team as Leoville Las Cases. Different terroir but, excellent experience.

Excellent, ripe candied fruit of; blackberries, black raspberries, dark cherries, both plums, raspberries, baked strawberries, dark spices, black licorice core, mid & dark colas, river stone, limestone alluvials, dry crushed rocks, dry tobacco, leather, saddle-wood, dark, rich, forest floor with dry leaves, some tree sap, tea leaves, soft, round, fresh herbs, dark, fresh & withering florals that are; dark, red, blue florals framed in violets & lavender. The acidity is excellent. The finish has length, balance, polish for days that falls on excellent soft earthiness.

2007 Bordeaux’s are already following suit as the 97’s in a lot of cases…only better. Value vintages in Bordeaux if you go looking.

@Severn Goodwin Seared infra-red :30 seconds a side which gives it just the right char with its rich fatness. Seasoned with coarse garlic salt, coarse black pepper & Whole Spice brand “Napa Valley Rub.” Perfection!
