This 2005 is drinking right now and at a great price. From a vineyard less than 5 acres it is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot and made by the team at Lynch Bages. There is lots of black fruit and spice on the nose with a bit of earth in the background. The soft mouth feel is all dark fruit, chocolate and spice with a smooth finish.

What a deal for '05 Pauillac! A very nice wine with complex balance of ripe fruit and rustic earth. A wine that can claim old school Bordeaux style while still appealing to more new world drinkers. I think this will be a big hit with our customers because it truly tastes like good Bordeaux should - a textbook wine.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Specific Appellation:

Pauillac

- Pauillac is probably the most famous village in Bordeaux. Located between St. Julien and St. Estephe, it has more of the top ranked chateau than the other four appellations of the Haut Medoc. This area has three of the five premier cru classe wineries: Lafite Rothschild, Latour, and Mouton Rothschild. There are two of the top second-growths (Pichon Lalande and Pichon Baron) as well as several outstanding fourth and fifth-growth chateaux including Lynch Bages. Because of the gravely soils and great drainage, Pauillac has the ideal conditions to grow great Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines from this village are some of the longest-lived in Bordeaux.
