La Croix de Beaucaillou

Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

The Bordeaux I've had over the last six months has, I must admit, left me sceptical as to why Bordeaux is so brilliant. With the exceptions of Chateau La Cardonne 2003 and Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste 2001, much of the Bordeaux I've had has left me disappointed. This bottle however reaffirmed to me the beauty of the region. Just an astonishingly good wine - 2005 of course being an excellent vintage - whose only let-down lay in my not opening the bottle a few years later; the wine would definitely benefit from a good five to ten years' more age, to soften the tannins and allow a longer finish. I am however being fussy. It was fantastic. — 8 years ago
