2005 Moulin-Haut-Laroque, Fronsac
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A stunning offering from one of Fronsac’s most consistent overachievers, this inky/blue/purple-tinged 2005 offers up aromas of black raspberries, crushed rocks, spring flowers, earth, and spice. Superior concentration, medium to full body, beautiful integration of acidity and tannin, and a 30+ second finish result in an impressive Fronsac. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020+.
Fresh and floral, with blackberry, violet and light cedar character. Full and caressing, with a beautiful, silky texture and a long, caressing finish. A lovely young wine. Best after 2010.
