Absolutely delicious and another living proof that 2008 is an underrated vintage in Bordeaux, the wine is really elegant and balanced, smooth and tasty, the nose opens up with notes of blackcurrant ,oak , earth, blackberry, tobacco, black fruit , chocolate, cassis and a light touch of dried herbs, the body is full with smooth round tannins, that open up after a couple of hours of decanting and the finish is long and delicious. This wine is all about fitness and elegance. My score 91, drink to 2024 — 23 days ago
Fantastic opaque color with intense deep red staining in the glass. In the nose Cabernet fruits as well as Merlot. Incredible balance and flavor intensity with awesome aftertaste. Still youthful and will be awesome in another 10 years. — 7 hours ago

The nose displays ripe plum, cedar, black tea, espresso, forest floor, dried herbs, and hint of crushed rocks. Warm smooth entry, leading to a rich but well balanced palate. The elegant tannins is still a bit chewy. Very classy.
The 04 was great, but this is better, which should not be a surprise given the great vintage of 2005 in Bordeaux. And at less than $30, the price is just silly! — 17 days ago
