2005 Puygueraud, Côtes de Francs

SKU #1036727 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Ranked #32 in Top 100 Wines of 2008* Shows lovely black currant, floral and black licorice notes. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a tight bead of fruit and mineral throughout. Long finish. Best after 2009. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Offering plenty of soft black cherry fruit, licorice, spice box, and plum, this medium-bodied 2005 is dark plum/ruby/purple and delivers loads of fruit. This beauty is drinking well already and should continue to do so for the next 7-10 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Sexy, ripe aromas of plum, redcurrant, smoke and minerals. Big, plummy and round; unusually rich and ripe for this Cotes de Francs estate. A broad, chocolatey big boy that finishes with substantial but ripe, dusty tannins. Very satisfying. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Here is an amazing find with an expressive, grapey nose and a flashy body of rich, dark fruit. This is an intense wine with deep, blue fruits, coffee grounds, bitter chocolate and velvety tannins on the finish. Only a vintage like ’05 gives us this quality at this price!
Top Value!
