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 »

2005 Grand Pontet, St-Emilion

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kudos to proprietress Sophie Porquet, who also makes the sensational Cotes de Castillon, Joanin-Becot. From this 35-acre vineyard she has fashioned a sensational blend of 70% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Her finest effort since taking over this property in 1999, the 2005 boasts a saturated purple color followed by notes of ripe blackberries, black currants, licorice, incense, chocolate, and espresso. Thick, highly-extracted flavors nearly obscure the elevated tannins. This big, serious, rich claret is meant to last for three ...Read More »

2005 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc

In his first review of this wine Robert Parker said: "A big-time sleeper of the vintage, this may be the finest Lanessan I have ever tasted." (04/07) More recently he rated it 90 points and continued his praise: "Shrewd Bordeaux buyers have long followed this excellent Medoc estate, whose wine can easily be confused with a St.-Julien or Pauillac. The 2005 is an undeniable sleeper of the vintage. Dark plum/purple-tinged with a beautiful nose of new saddle leather, spice box, black currants, and a hint of unsmoked cigar tobacco, it offers medium body, adm... Read More »

2005 Clos de l'Oratoire, St-Emilion

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the Comte von Neipperg, his wines from this over-achieving estate always deliver an aromatic fireworks display of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, roasted herbs, black olive, cassis and sweet kirsch. The 2005 has all that as well as ripe, well-integrated, velvety tannin, and full body in a sexy, luscious, heady style to drink now and over the next 10-15 years. (RP)" (6/2015) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is exotic, with mushroom, blackberry and meat aromas. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and lots of decadent fruit character. Long and beautiful.

2005 Margaux, Margaux

100 points James Suckling: "The nose on this seems more concentrated than the 2000, and the purity of fruit is stunning, with blueberries, raspberries, fresh flowers, and hints of licorice. This is perfect and complete. Full bodied, with notes of forest berries and wild raspberries, this is thick and velvety with perfectly polished tannins. You can really feel the density on this, more than the tannic structure. This is a sleeping beauty that will be utterly captivating when it awakes. Don't touch this until after 2015."

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion (96RP, 96WS, 95ST, 94W&S, 94WE). Wine Spectator: "Terrifically dense, with layers of plum sauce, melted red licorice, raspberry coulis and blackberry pâte de fruit coursing along, but never top-heavy, as alluring floral and incense notes hang in the background. The long, mineral-driven finish keeps everything firmly grounded. Approachable now, but has a ways to go. (JM, Web-2015)"

Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required.

Great aging potential. A triumph. *Cellar Selection*" (6/2008) 96 points James Suckling: "This offers aromas of spices, dried dark fruits, meat and berries.

2005 Baron de Brane, Margaux

Decanter: "A second wine of an excellent Margaux at 12 years old in a great vintage should be on its absolute plateau right now, and while this is fairly evolved, it offers plenty of gentle soft leather and brioche pleasure. There is some sweet brambly fruit with the faintest trace of brett, but overall it's a beautiful wine to enjoy over the next few years. It's crying out for slow-braised lamb. (JA)" (11/2017) Wine Spectator: "Shows currant bush and sweet tobacco, with berry underneath on the nose. Medium-bodied, with an earthy, funky finish. Good enough.

It finishes dry, the power of the tannin increasing with air, with a grip that will need long bottle aging to relent. Check on it ten years from the vintage." (10/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Milk chocolate and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body, with very soft tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is so delicious now, but has a balance of fruit and tannins. One of the best from this estate in some time. Best after 2014."

Best after 2011. *Smart Buys* (JL)" (3/2008) 88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Space limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982.

(3/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A pleasant, picnic-styled 2005, this wine offers sweet cherry and currant fruit, a medium ruby/purple color, moderate body, light tannin... especially for the vintage.

Cassis, black cherries, tobacco leaf, cedar and classic Pauillac lead-pencil characteristics all emerge from this ripe, sexy, surprisingly rounded effort that has a stacked mid-palate and sweet, polished tannin. It’s impressive today but is going to cruise for another two to three decades." (12/2017) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "Baron was trapped in its oak en primeur, seeming flashy, luscious and soft.

A pretty, elegant young Pomerol. Much better in bottle. Close to the excellent 2000. Best after 2012." (3/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is a strong effort from Plince, which is not normally one of my favorite Pomerols. This offering displays a dense ruby/purple color, loads of sweet licorice, black cherry and truffle-like fruit, medium to full body and a soft underbelly. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.

2005 Lascombes, Margaux

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."

2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pontet Canet is a bruiser that’s still not anywhere near primetime. Blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and saddle leather all emerge from this concentrated, powerful, structured 2005 that has an incredible amount of fruit, yet no shortage of ripe tannin, extract, and length. It needs another 4-5 years (or more) to hit maturity, but it’s an incredible wine that’s going to reward patience. 97+" (2/2018) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the Pontet-Canet vertical in London, the 2005 Château Pontet-Canet has long been one of the stars of the vintage and this might well ...Read More »

2005 Jean Faure, St-Emilion

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby-red. Reticent but nuanced nose hints at currant, game, iron and coffee. A fruit bomb in the mouth, with fat, sweet flavors of redcurrant, raspberry, tobacco and smoked meat. As full-blown and ripe as this is on first blush, there's plenty of ripe tannins and firm acids underneath. In fact, this quickly shut down in the glass, suggesting that it will require at least six or seven years of aging. The thickest of these three vintages, but the young 2007 is more suave.

In the mouth, it is medium-bodied and shallow, with light to moderate tannin and a decent finish. New owners, the insurance group Groupe Le Mondiale, and a new manager, Claire Thomas-Chenard, should result in higher quality from this estate.

It needs at least another five years." (5/2013) 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.

However, do not expect ostentation on the nose. This is 2005 and like many wines of this vintage, even with considerable decanting, it remained broody and introspective on the nose, as if it is checking you out and seeing if you are worthy. Once you have been accepted, then it swings the doors open to reveal gorgeous scents of blackberry, briary and cassis fruit, perhaps a little more sous-bois than I have noticed compared to previous bottles. The palate is medium-bodied, but dense and structured—certainly a more masculine Pontet-Canet built for long-term ageing.

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Unquestionably the best example of Bellisle-Mondotte (which lives in the shadow of its neighbor, La Mondotte) I have yet tasted, the 2005 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet black fruit notes interwoven with new oak, licorice, and loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, fresh, lively, and vibrant, it will provide enjoyable drinking over the next 15 years." (4/2006) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Has licorice, blackberry and mineral character on the nose. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a seamless tannin structure. Balanced and r ...Read More »

2005 Grand Puy Ducasse, Pauillac (1.5L)

According to Robert Parker: "...this charming, precociously styled effort is still a sleeper of the vintage. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet bouquet of creamy oak, black cherries, and black currants, supple tannins, and a ripe, heady finish. It should drink well for 15+ years." (04/07) According to the Wine Spectator: "Some berry and cherry character. Medium- to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish." (03/06) K&L's barrel tasting notes - 62% cabernet sauvignon and 38% merlot. Closed on nose. Big wine. Tannic but could ... Read More »

2005 Meyney, St-Estèphe (1.5L)

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." (Web 08) According to Jancis Robinson: "Very ripe and focused and intense on the nose. Surprisingly gentle for a St-Estèphe. The polar opposite of the Phélan Ségur ... almost disconcertingly smooth... awfully easy and full of charm... Certainly no shortage of fine 2005 tannins. Very dry finish. Well done."

2005 La Tour Figeac, St-Emilion (1.5L) Back In Stock!
2005 La Tour Figeac, St-Emilion (1.5L)

91 points Robert Parker: "This sexy, seductive St.-Emilion is a combination of primarily Merlot and small amounts of Cabernet Franc. Well-integrated acidity, sweet, velvety tannin, and a gorgeous bouquet of black fruits, earth, roasted herbs, cedar, and fruitcake make for a sensual, endearing wine. In the mouth, the silky texture, full body, and chocolate, black cherry, and licorice-infused blackberry flavors add additional opulence and voluptuousness to this beautifully pure, expansively flavored effort. Consume this sleeper of the vintage now and over ... Read More »

2005 Angélus, St-Emilion (1.5L)
Bid on this magnum of 2005 Angélus, St-Emilion (1.5L) (100RP, 97VN, 96ST, 96W&S, 96WS, 95CG). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Truly great stuff, this wine performed at a three-digit level both in the horizontal tasting of 2005s in Baltimore, as well as in Montreal at this mini-vertical. This sensational, opaque, bluish/purple wine offers up notes of vanillin, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, plus a touch of licorice. The wine hits the palate with a thunderous cascade of ripe, rich, concentrated fruit. It is full-bodied, multidimensional and layered. The tannins are beautifully integrated but still present, and the wood, acidity, alcohol, etc., are all beautifully assimilated in this magnificent, majestic vintage of Angelus. It can be drunk now, but it is still an adolescent and that suggests it has at least another 25-35 years of longevity. (RP)" (08/2015)
