2005 Langoa-Barton, St-Julien Top Pick!
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. (NM)" (2/2015) 92 points Wine & Spirits: "This vintage emphasizes dark chocolate and French roast coffee scent ...Read More »

2005 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2005 Cheval Blanc, St-Emilion 6-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 from Cheval Blanc is a quintessentially elegant, beautiful, deep bluish/ruby-colored wine from St.-Emilion, with raspberry, blueberry, and floral notes, impressive density, great precision, freshness and purity. Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage. It is difficult to forget the gorgeous blueberry and raspberry fruit, full body, sweet tannin, a multi-layered texture, and purity and ...Read More »

2005 Reignac, Bordeaux Supérieur

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another top-notch effort from the home property of the brilliant Yves Vatelot, Reignac’s 2005 has a dense ruby/purple color and notes of graphite, black currant, some sweet cherries, and spice box. It is a medium to full-bodied wine with beautiful concentration, decent acidity, and ripe tannin. Despite its humble appellation, this is a very serious wine that is qualitatively up there with some of the better classified growths of the Medoc. It should drink beautifully for 8-10 years. A sleeper of the vintage!" (4/2008) 88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good full medium ruby. Expressive arom ...Read More »

2005 Caronne Ste-Gemme, Haut-Médoc

91 points Wine Spectator: "Offers raisin and dried fruit, with very ripe fruit aromas and coffee and oak undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. This is pumped up, but I like the flamboyant character. 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. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be ...Read More »

2005 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon Back In Stock!
2005 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon

93 points 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. Full-bodied, rich, still structured and tannic, but super-concentrated, this is an amazing effort in 2005. Give it another several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 20 years.

2005 Petit Village, Pomerol

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Superrich in its dark fruit, black herbs and boldly oaked flavors, this is also firm and, in the end, extremely tannic. 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."

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 Pichon-Baron, Pauillac

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005 Pichon-Longueville Baron is another concentrated, full-bodied 2005 that’s starting to drink well. 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. Now bottled and shipped, it has the unremitting tannic power of the vintage, ...Read More »

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.

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2005s from Bordeaux continue to show youthfully, yet spectacularly well! The 2005 Smith-Haut-Lafitte is a prime example of the vintage and offers a huge, rich, concentrated style as well as classic dark fruits, tobacco, scorched earth and graphite aromas and flavors. While this is a tannic vintage, the tannins here are sweet and polished and covered by fruit. With stunning purity of fruit, notable freshness, and a great, great finish, drink this beauty anytime over the coming two decades."

This property has certainly joined the big league in Margaux." (6/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind at Southwold. The ’05 Labegorce is adorned with a ripe, well defined nose, quite delicate with blackberry, plum and boysenberry - elegant and feminine. The palate has a soft ripe entry, rounded and supple in texture although not inherently a complex Margaux, but well crafted. The finish has a nice poise but it is st ...Read More »

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 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 2005 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (97JD, 97RP, 96WS, 95DC, 95VN, 94WE). 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 be the best of over a dozen showings of this wine. 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. Yet it retains marvelous freshness and vitality all the way through to the pencil-lead, quite saline finish. I suspe

2005 Clos St. Martin, St-Emilion

This is a long-distance runner and a sensational effort in the vintage. Drink it over the next 25-30 years. 97+ (RP)" (6/2015) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Beautiful crushed berry, spice and raspberry tart character follows through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish.

2005 Ormes de Pez, St-Estèphe

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very dense, black, dominated by dark tannins and plum skins, with a mineral edge. The acidity and the ripe fruits are under all this structure, typical of young Saint-Estèphe. This needs time - don't touch for five years." (6/2008) K&L Notes: (*1/2) 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Black cherry on the nose. Expressive, vibrant, supper mid-palate with a sweet lovely texture. 53 hectoliters per hectare and 13.3% alcohol, but the wine does not show the alcohol. More vibrant on palate.

(4/2012) 94 points Vinous: "Open-knit yet deep and powerful, the 2005 Les Forts de Latour is striking today. The pedigree of the vintage comes through in spades. Expressive, perfumed aromatics meld into a core of supple, open-knit fruit in a mid-weight, impeccably balanced Forts de Latour.

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2005 La Vieille Cure, Fronsac (92RP, 90WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In this vintage, this estate (one of the leading properties in Fronsac) produced an opaque/purple blend of 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines averaging 25 years of age. Offering beautiful black cherry and black raspberry fruit, abundant chalk, minerality, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and a long finish, this over-achieving, full-throttle Fronsac is a brilliant example of the vintage and of this terroir. Give it another several years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 10-15 years. This sleeper of the vintage should prove to be one of the longest-lived vintages of Vieille Cure to date.

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.

Still youthful, exuberant and rich, this wine has a dense ruby/purple color and beautiful notes of violets, graphite and crème de cassis as well as some blueberry fruit.

The aroma balances meaty fruit and mineral scents, and while the pungent red fruit is always there, the tannins seem to increase their intensity with air.

2005 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac
Bid on this bottle of 2005 Mouton Rothschild, Pauillac (98JS, 98RP, 98VN, 95ST, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Château Mouton-Rothschild is a deeply impressive First Growth. It has been blessed with a sensational nose that comes racing out of the blocks with audacious scents of black fruit, cedar, smoke and pencil box (Philippe Dhalluin mentioned that the signature smokiness/fireside hearth was tangible in around 80% of the vats during élevage). There is a sense of bravura here, of aristocracy. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous black fruit, perhaps beginning to soften in texture, one or two years off its plateau. There are layers and layers of black fruit intermingling with graphite and black pepper, and it wisely reins everything in on the finish that is more classic in style and in keeping with the vintage. If you are fortunate enough to have this wine in your cellar, even though those tannins are starting to be abraded by time, afford it another five or six

Then big, sweet and plump on the palate, with full, mellow flavors of red berries, tobacco and mocha, plus a light smoked meat note. Finishes with sweet tannins and lin ...Read More »

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 Grand Puy Ducasse, Pauillac
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Grand Puy Ducasse, Pauillac (91RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another 'best ever' performance, the Grand-Puy-Ducasse is made in a charming style for a 2005 Pauillac. This deep ruby-hued, very concentrated, precocious, showy effort displays copious quantities of sweet oak intermixed with black cherries, black currants, velvety tannins, medium body, and loads of fruit. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15-20 years. (RP)" (04/2008)

2005 La Confession, St-Emilion
Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 2005 La Confession, St-Emilion (95RP). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Opaque purple, with a sweet blue and blackberry perfume intertwined with licorice and graphite, the 2005 La Confession exhibits massive concentration and extraction, but this full-bodied wine pulls back from being over-the-top because of intrinsic freshness and admirable purity. It is a brilliant effort from the young Janouiex, but it needs some cellaring. (RP)" (04/2008)

2005 Pavie Macquin, St-Emilion

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. 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. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure. 96+ (RP)" (6/2015) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Terrifically dense, with layers of plum sauce, melted red licorice, raspberry coulis and blackberry pâte de fruit coursing along, but never ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2005 l'Evangile, Pomerol (100WS, 96RP, 96W&S, 94ST). Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, almost purple black, with pure tapenade and hints of ripe plum and berry. Full-bodied, with layer upon layer of velvety tannins and chocolate, berry, vanilla and tea flavors. Lasts for minutes. I am blown away by this wine. This has been amazing since the moment I tasted it from barrel. Reminds me of the superb 1950. Best after 2015. (JS)" (03/2008)

2005 Fombrauge, St-Emilion

94 points James Suckling: "This is so rich and layered with beautiful ripe fruit and round tannins. Tar, chocolate, light vanilla and currants. It's complete and complex. Superb for this estate. Better in three to five years but fascinating to tasting now." (1/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Dark in color, with intense aromas of dried mushroom and very ripe fruit. Almost raisiny. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Turns meaty and raisiny. A very mature style, but one that I like a lot. This is always a wonderful value. Best after 2013."

2005 Péby Faugères, St-Emilion
Bid on this bottle of 2005 Péby Faugères, St-Emilion (100RP, 94WS, 93JS, 92ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A perfect wine in this vintage, the 2005 Péby Faugères has the classic liqueur of blueberries and spring flowers. Dense purple and full-bodied, with unbelievable richness, this tastes like a great Napa Cab from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard, even though there’s no Cabernet Sauvignon in it. This is a sensational wine – rich, full and multi-dimensional, with a skyscraper-like mid-palate and finish. Kudos to Péby Faugères for producing one of the perfect wines of the vintage. Drink it in about 3-4 years as well as over the following two decades." (06/2015)

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2005 Rauzan-Gassies, Margaux ((91-93WE), 92RP, 90W&S). 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)" (06/2006)

2005 Lucia, St-Emilion

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another tiny St.-Emilion operation (7.5 acres, with one parcel of Merlot planted in 1901), Lucia’s brilliantly executed 2005 boasts an inky/purple/blue color along with a sweet perfume of blueberries, blackberries, charcoal, incense, Asian spices, and hints of coffee and pain grille in the background. This full-bodied, powerful, layered St.-Emilion is filled with fruit extract, glycerin, and tannin. It displays a certain accessibility, but it will undoubtedly be at its finest in 4-10 years, and keep for 25. This is another sumptuous wine from consultant ...Read More »
