2005 Malmaison, Moulis
Very dark purple in color, showing aromas of mineral, dark chocolate and licorice. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Layered and pretty. Very, very balanced. Close to the excellent 2000. Best after 2012.
80% merlot and 20% cabernet sauvignon. Excellent richness on the palate. Fine breed and very good length on the palate. Will be a sleeper of the vintage. Buy it. *1/2 (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Our last 50 cases just arrived. This is a huge score for such a low price!
