2005 Coufran, Haut-Médoc Top Pick!
2005 Coufran, Haut-Médoc

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "If you're looking for great, ripe black currant fruits, this is where to come. The wine is full and hugely fruity, but it still manages a good Bordeaux sense of proportion. (RV)" (6/2006) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Coufran is much more concentrated than normal, with a big, rich, black cherry, earthy, spicy mouthfeel. Medium-bodied, with a long, heady power and richness, this is a seriously endowed, much bigger than usual Coufran to drink over the next decade or more. (RP)" (6/2015)

2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac Top Pick!
2005 Lynch-Bages, Pauillac

96 points James Suckling: "A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused. Lovely now to drink but better in 2017." (10/2015) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "There's a relaxed feel to this wine. Cazes's team can dress Lynch-Bages in the black-tie formality of a first growth, but the wine is still lovely-a touch of gaminess makes it friendly rather than ponderous. There's something ethereal about its tannins, like a chocolate truffle melting in the mouth. (Daniel Ll ...Read More »

2005 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "No tasting note given." (4/2008) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is pure and precise, showing rich apricot, peach and clementine flavors, but great cut too, with a mouthwatering edge that lets chamomile, green plum and honeysuckle notes dance through the finish. Gorgeous. (JM, Web-2011)" 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Superripe but precise aromas of mirabelle, white nectarine and honey. Supersweet, deep and powerful, with a fat, honeyed character and terrific spicy persistence. A big boy but with lovely balance. (ST)" (7/2008)

2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac Top Pick!
2005 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, balanced by unrelenting purity of fruit that somehow manages to anesthetize the monstrous tannin, to soften the extremely dry, mineral-bound finish into a caress. The wine may be bombastic, but it's also succulent and as sweet as a ripe black raspberry. It's easy to imagine this wine 50 years from now, in impeccable condition."

2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Langoa Barton 2005 offers plenty of concentration on the nose: blackberries, blueberry, a touch of cedar and tobacco emerging from the glass, opening and gaining intensity all the time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This is beautifully balanced in the mouth, perhaps just a little conservative but with great precision and length. It has the freshness and vitality to be approachable now, though I would prefer to leave this for another 4 or 5 years.

2005 Léoville-Poyferré, St-Julien

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine's heady rush of flavor gave one taster goosebumps. She called it sexy. 'Formidable.' Other technical descriptions included 'the shazam,' 'has zazz,' and 'unprintable. That's some serious s#¡†.' At the en primeur tastings, this ap­peared to be chunky and superripe. Now it's massive, with dark extract and exotic spice, a sophisticated wine that ends on sweetness, bitter chocolate and dark berry fruit. With all the flash, it will give a lot of pleasure as a young wine, but it has the plump Poyferré terroir drive to sustain that pleasure for years ...Read More »

2005 Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognan

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of crushed berries, flowers and stones. It’s very ripe and rich. Yet it remains fresh. It’s full-bodied, with silky tannins and a crisp finish. It needs another year or two to soften but it’s already gorgeous to drink. Decant an hour or two before." (10/2012) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* With its dryness, this seems at first to be all tannin. There is, though, a black currant fruit flavor that shows through after the wine has been in the mouth for a while, and the aftertaste has fine acidity. This should develop well.

2005 Benjamin de Sansonnet, St-Emilion

At K&L we love Sansonnet, as it remains one of the finest value chateaux of Bordeaux, especially in superb vintages like 2005. Located at the east end of St-Emilion, on the highest point of the plateau, Sansonnet is neighbor to a few of the great classified growth Bordeaux properties. The d'Aulan acquired the chateau in 1999, and in renovating it, they have pouring many Euros into the winery and vineyards. The exceptional terroir is composed of an argilo-limestone soil, on a rocky subsoil, ideal for quality merlot and cabernet. Forgotten in the past, Sa... Read More »

2005 Lascombes, Margaux

94 points Wine & Spirits: "A joyous Lascombes, this is the first vintage to hit stride since the US investment firm Colony Capital took over in 2001. It's a meaty wine draped in fragrant tannin, built for long aging. It's also an exuberant wine, in both the bright, red currant-scented fruit and the bristle of the tannin. A playfully complex flavor lasts for minutes, the wine still youthful and fresh four days after it was opened. Margaux chic." (3/2008) 93 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This well-filled, impeccably balanced wine starts with aromas of cherries, sweet berries, tobacco leaves, rose petals, vanilla bean ...Read More »

2005 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien Top Pick!
2005 Gruaud-Larose, St-Julien

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This tastes of great Cabernet Sauvignon, with its black currant, cedar and herbs and fresh, juicy acidity. It is as fresh as it is rich, but it has a structure of dense tannins that balances the wine. This is one of the best wines from Gruaud-Larose for several years. (RV)" (6/2008) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Licorice spice and tough black tannins form tight boundaries around this wine. Within them, sweet red fruit lends a gracious impression, gentle and refined.

Bid on this 5-bottle lot of 2005 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon (93RP, 92WS, 91ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the famous family of Comte de Neipperg, the 2005 D’Aiguilhe is sensational and may be one of the best cuvées I have ever tasted from Neipperg and his Côtes de Castillon estate. This wine has an opaque purple color and loads of Christmas fruitcake, licorice and crushed chalk along with plenty of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit.

Very spicy and earthy. St. Estephe character. Enjoy or age." (2/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of currant and fresh flowers follow through to a medium-to-full body, with chewy tannins and a slightly woody finish, but the fruit comes through. Turns long and pretty. Best after 2010. (JS, Web-2008)" K&L Notes: From barrel: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 29% Petit Verdot. Sweet and lush-delicious. Elegant style. We love this ...

Full and very layered with chewy polished tannins and a long, long finish. Just starting to open. Changes all the time. Still needs a year or two but gorgeous to drink already."

Just becoming approachable, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of musky currant, black raspberry, camphor and tobacco leaf.

2005 Larcis Ducasse, St. Emilion (375ml)

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir on the Cote Pavie has long been recognized as one of the most privileged spots in St.-Emilion, but it was not until the wunderkind duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt took over in 2002 that the wine finally began to live up to its potential. Old timers who remember the 1945 Larcis Ducasse will attest to how great this cuvee can be. Sadly, fewer than 3,000 cases were produced of the 2005, a blend of 78% Merlot and the rest primarily Cabernet Franc with a small dollop of Cabernet Sauvignon.

One can still discern those brown spices infiltrating the ripe red and black fruit. There is fine mineralité here, great focus, perhaps just a hint of dried blood that develops with time.

The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone.

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Rieussec is a blend of 90% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle picked between 23 September and 27 October. It has a fabulous bouquet that is mineral-rich and tensile. The palate repeats its performance from last year: focused, tense, laden with botrytis-rich fruit with a crystalline and sorbet-fresh finish that seals the deal. One of the best releases from the estate in recent years. Tasted April 2016. (NM)" (1/2017) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet and thick, with honey and cara ...Read More »

2005 d'Issan, Margaux

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The more serious grand vin twin, the 2005 d’Issan, has a stunning nose of spring flowers, blackcurrant and blue/black fruits galore, and an impressively opaque dark plum/purple color. With a rich, concentrated and pure mouthfeel, wonderfully sweet tannin, full-bodied density and richness, but elegance in abundance, this is a stunner, and one of the great Margaux of the vintage. Drink it now and over the next 20 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 95 points James Suckling: "Lots of sweet tea leaf with mineral and currant character. Stone undertones, too. Full body, firm tannins and a tight finish. ...Read More »

2005 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

97 points Wine Spectator: "This has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and Jonagold apple flavors all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and dried citrus notes. (Web Only- 2012)" 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2005 Chateau d’Yquem is similar to the 2006 in that it deserves aeration. The bouquet is well-defined, although there is clearly some new oak that will need another two or three years to fully integrate. The aromatics seem to show a little more botrytis than ...Read More »

2005 Labégorce-Zédé, Margaux

89-91 points Wine Spectator: "Fabulous aromas of crushed raspberries and violets. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long finish. Refined." (6/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Very concentrated crimson. Scented, gentle, very sleek and expressive. Dry finish. More refined than the straight Labégorce. Drink 2010-2020." (4/2006) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 is one of the finest efforts from this property in over twenty years. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the wine’s dense plum/purple color is followed by smoky aromas of incense, blue fruits as well as black currants, ...Read More »

2005 Beychevelle, St-Julien

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Grand Vin, the 2005 Beychevelle is a gorgeous wine, with plenty of crème de cassis, floral notes, underbrush and forest floor. It is sweet and medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin and beautiful texture and purity. Drink it over the next 20 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very much in an elegant style, this wine shows soft, almost velvet tannins supporting the ripe fruit. It has richness, a round character masking the dense texture, and setting off the clean red berry fruits and fresh acidity." (6/2008) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "We hit Beychevelle at a fragrant, gentle moment in its evol ...Read More »

2005 Ferrière, Margaux

90-92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel sample. Dark, dry and tannic this wine currently offers little in the way of fruit. The tannins are firm, solidly based and only hinting at the fruit underneath. It's a tough wine at the moment, but the structure will certainly see it into a good maturity." (6/2006) 91 points Wine Spectator: "This offers blackberry, currant and hints of meat on the nose. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a meat, berry and light vanilla character. Has a velvety texture, with pretty fruit. Best after 2011." (3/2008) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "Claire Villars captured the raciness of Margaux in one clean, simple brush st ...Read More »

2005 Prieure-Lichine, Margaux

93 points James Suckling: "This is really fine and layered with ripe and polished tannins and a beautiful depth of fruit. Blackberries, currants and blueberries with hints of light chocolate. Some minerals too. Intense finish. Drink or hold." (7/2013) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Black in color, with impressive aromas of flowers, tar, licorice and ripe fruit, such as currant and sultana. Full-bodied, with a solid concentration of fruit and ultrapolished tannins. Better than from barrel. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This deliciously sexy, seductive style of wine from Prieure-Lichine is very much in keeping with ...Read More »

2005 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan

91 points Wine Spectator: "Aromas of mineral, blackberry and licorice lead to a full body, with lots of racy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. There's plenty of character, with a polished, refined style, yet tannic. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) 90 points Connoisseurs Guide: "Scattered notes of stony spice and tobacco join with fairly solid young curranty fruit in both the aromas and flavors of this full-scaled and well-extracted young Graves, and it delivers a little more volume and depth than we would expect at the price. It is long on tannic grip at the moment and is thus one meant for the cellar, and we ...Read More »
