'05 vintage, elegant, not showing its age, mostly primary fruit, plums, cassis, very subtle, well integrated oak spice. Dare I say not very typical St. Emilion as the Cabernets shows too prominently.

My go to favorite!! Tremendous QPR! 30+ minute decant and could have used more. Dark cherry color. Nose of cherries and earth. Wine is inky & deep with black cherries, tar, and tobacco. Medium+ finish. I’ll buy as much as I can find or afford!!

Happy New Year!! Always good, but not as stellar as previous bottles. Dark purple color. Phenomenal nose that is very rustic. No decant and wine was very reserved. Cork came out a little too easy, which probably had something to do with it. Still good, but a little disappointing.

I don’t think you can call an ‘05 Bordeaux your go to when you discovered it in 2018, but I’m sure glad I have 4 more bottles! Great value! 45+ minutes open in the bottle. Still working on acquiring a decanter across the pond. Dark purple color with dark cherries on the nose, as well as more OH than I remember from the last bottle. Nice structure, with more cherries and tar on the palate. Medium finish. Great find!

30-45 open in the bottle, got better and better with more air. Medium purple color. Massive oak and vanilla on the nose. One of the better Bordeaux’s I’ve ever had! Very complex as the fruit (black cherry) is well proportioned with tar and earth/dirt. Finish is deep and long! The ‘05 Bordeaux’s are insane. Great way to settle into our in new home in London!!
