2005 Verdignan, Haut-Médoc

90 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, with lots of blackberry, mineral, licorice and a hint of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and generous, with lots of fruit underneath. Best after 2011. (JS)" (3/2008) Decanter: "Lifted cassis and hedgerow fruits. Harmonious balance between ripe, dark fruit, integrated oak, and chewy tannins. Attractive. Drink 2013-18." (6/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A consistently well-made cru bourgeois, this wine exhibits a deep ruby color and a nice, earthy nose with hints of burning embers intermixed with black fruits, herbs, and spice. ...Read More »

2005 Meyney, St-Estèphe

90 points James Suckling: "This starts off a little bretty with barnyard undertones, but it blows off to flowers and rich fruit. Round and juicy, with yummy flavors. A long finish on this. 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 ...

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. Age will allow the wine to expand as the tannins relent, but this offers impressive drinking now, particularly if decante ...Read More »

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 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 Magdelaine, St-Emilion

94 points Vinous: "(a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.53 pH; IPT 65; 13.8% alcohol): Bright ruby. Sexy, compelling nose of blackcurrant, violet, white pepper and minerals is an absolute knockout. Then very refined on the palate, with a delicate spiciness to the blackcurrant, red plum and mineral flavors, but with noteworthy fleshiness and ripeness lifted by harmonious acidity. This is a very great and impeccably balanced Magdelaine in the making. Finishes long and silky, with a persistent strawberry note. Jean-Claude Berrouet considers this to be a classic Mag ...Read More »

The botrytis dryness is really not here at this stage, but with its elegant creamy texture, wood flavors still very present. This is still at the very beginning of its development. (RV)" (6/2008) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes.

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."

Lots of clove and orange peel. Same quality as the 2001." (3/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Védrines has a rich and decadent bouquet, very honeyed and forward, perhaps missing the precision of the Doisy-Daëne.

Then ripe and creamy in the middle palate but with very good definition to its flavors of stone fruits and sexy oak spice. Finishes quite long and pure, with noteworthy clarity and grip." (7/2008) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Honey, apple pie, dried pineapple and acacia aromas follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness and a spicy, viscous finish.

2005 Canon, St-Emilion (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Château Canon vertical, the 2005 Canon is evolving into a quite gorgeous Saint Emilion. 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 medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. It is a very complex Saint Emilion with immense purity and style, a wine that you have to keep coming back to in order to understand.

A stunningly opulent wine with a dense purple color, the 2005 possesses a beautiful perfume of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries, creosote, and graphite, full body, silky but noticeable tannins, a layered mouthfeel, and a stunning, 45+-second finish.

2005 Certan de May, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This great terroir sandwiched between Vieux Château Certan, Petrus and La Fleur Petrus, on the high plateau of Pomerol, has been owned for many years by the Barrau-Badar family. Beautiful coffee, cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit jump from the glass of this full-bodied, rich, multi-layered, and very impressive Certan de May. I don’t remember it showing this well in barrel and post-bottling, but it is strutting its stuff at age 10, and has a good 20 years of upside left to it. This is a beauty.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An attractive and seductive style of wine, the 2005 Réserve de la Comtesse has lots of black currant fruit, earth, spice and a touch of oak. It is easygoing, seductive, and best drunk over the next 7-8 years. (RP)" (6/2015) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red-ruby. More flowery than fruity on the nose, with considerable sex appeal. Then refined in the mouth, but with moderate depth of flavor. Suave, easygoing and forward, with expressive flavors of red fruits, minerals and flowers. Finishes with firm, slightly drying tannins. This will give early pleasure."

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes

The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do ...Read More »

Medium-bodied., smoky, with classic scorched earth, Graves-like aromatics and flavors, this wine displays impeccable winemaking, with pure fruit, medium body, and gorgeously long, rich flavors and moderate levels of tannin. The wine should be relatively drinkable in 3-5 years and last for at least two decades or more. This is possibly the finest Malartic Lagravière e ...Read More »

2005 Clos de Sarpe, St-Emilion

Sharply delineated and very tightly wound, but with superb intensity of black fruit, chocolate, earth and mineral flavors and excellent inner-palate energy. This mounts very slowly on the back, finishing with a youthfully sappy quality, firm tannins and impressive length. This wine from a chalky hillside on the Cotes east of the town of St. Emilion is typically high in acidity (the pH of the 2005 is 3.55), austere and downright unsexy in its youth, but this especially juicy 2005 b ...Read More »

Nicely oaked, ripe but not over-ripe, it possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as sweet scents of pain grille, kirsch liqueur, and black currants.

Full-bodied, powerful and rich, it is not as nuanced or complex as the top four or five Pomerols, but close.

Still showing considerable tannin and structure, it is remarkably youthful and tastes more like a 2- to 3-year-old wine than one that is a decade old.

2005 Le Gay, Pomerol

Give this wine at least another 5-10 years of cellaring and drink it over the following quarter-century. (RP)" (6/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Dark purple in color, with aromas of coffee, green olive, blackberry and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with very polished yet present tannins and a long, rich, fruity finish. The best Le Gay in years. Bes ...Read More »

2005 Lafaurie Peyraguey, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. Best after 2012.

2005 Rauzan-Gassies, Margaux Back In Stock!
2005 Rauzan-Gassies, Margaux

91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Solid, dry tannins, very firm and hard, but they are also ripe. The wine has high extraction, very dark fruit flavors, but resists being too huge. This could well turn out to be a very elegant. (RV)" (6/2006) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Significantly better from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2005 Rauzan-Gassies appears to be the finest wine this estate has ever produced. Dense purple-hued with a beautiful perfume of camphor, creme de cassis, licorice, bay leaf, and incense, it is a full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, broad, rich Margaux with lovely integrated tannins. This ba ...Read More »

2005 Figeac, St-Emilion Back In Stock!
2005 Figeac, St-Emilion

95 points Wine Spectator: "This is subtle and complex, showing blackberry, fresh tobacco and light vanilla, with a hint of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with super well-integrated tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Refined and classy. The best modern wine from this producer." (3/2008) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "The predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon in Figeac has won out in 2005. It shows in the delicious black currant fruits and very fresh, vibrant acidity. The tannins, curiously, are less apparent- maybe all that fruit overwhelms them. Only on the finish is there some austerity and firmness. ...Read More »

2005 Latour, Pauillac (2017 Ex-Chateau Release, 6 pack in OWC) (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2005 Latour, Pauillac (2017 Ex-Chateau Release, 6 pack in OWC) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points James Suckling: "A very complex nose of lavender, currants, spices, and hot stones. Full and dense on the palate, with a very tight structure. The tannins have a perfect polish to their density, and the finish is very intense, with wonderful fruit and truffle character. This turns almost decadent, with tremendous energy and a constantly changing profile. This is a very challenging wine to get to know, please leave this for at least ten years." (2/2011) 100 points Wine & Spirits: "How rare to confront a wine of this inner strength and perfect form. Grown at a 116-acre vineyard at the southern border o ...Read More »

2005 Léoville-Las Cases, St-Julien 6-pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Wine Spectator: "This is breathtaking. Black in color, with incredible aromas of crushed blackberry, mineral, licorice and lead pencil. Full-bodied, with a mind-blowing texture of seamless tannins that coat every millimeter of the palate. Goes on and on, with licorice, currant and flowers. Time will tell if it's better than the 2000. Best after 2017. (JS)" (3/2008) 98 points Vinous: "A wine for the ages, the 2005 Léoville Las Cases is slow to come out of the gate, but its beauty and pedigree are evident. The 2005 Las Cases is one of the only wines in this tasting that still needs time in bot ...Read More »

2005 Branaire-Ducru, St-Julien (1.5L)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As usual, the 2005 Branaire-Ducru is one of the more distinctive wines of St.-Julien. Proprietor Patrick Maroteaux has turned out another classic. While not as opulent or fleshy as the 2003, and it remains to be seen if it will eclipse the 2000, the 2005 is a big, structured, intensely rich effort with raspberry, blueberry, and spring flower garden characteristics, stunning purity, full-bodied power, and good underlying acidity as well as harmony. The hard tannins suggest 8-9 years of cellaring will be beneficial; it should last for three decades. Antici ...Read More »

2005 Domaine de Chevalier Rouge, Pessac-Léognan (1.5L)

93 points Wine Spectator: "Displays floral, blackberry and mineral aromas, with a hint of fresh tobacco. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Has a fine, polished texture. This is a class act--the best since 1998 for the red." (3/2008) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Perhaps the finest wine made at this estate in many years (no doubt due to the influence of wine consulting guru Stephane Derenoncourt), the 2005 is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot with tiny portions of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. A dark ruby/purple hue is followed by a classic Graves ...Read More »

2005 Meyney, St-Estèphe 12-pack in OWC

90 points James Suckling: "This starts off a little bretty with barnyard undertones, but it blows off to flowers and rich fruit. Round and juicy, with yummy flavors. A long finish on this. 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 ...
