2005 Pipeau, St-Émilion

SKU #1037325 92 points Wine Spectator

 Beautiful blackberry, cherry and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with coffee, smoke and berry character. Long and stylish. Velvety and balanced. Best after 2013. *Top 100 Wines of 2008* (JS)  (5/2008)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A reliably exciting value in St.-Emilion from proprietor Mestreguilhem, Pipeau always seems to hit high on the hedonistic scale of pleasure bombs. The ruby/purple 2005 has loads of fruit, although not a great deal of complexity, but it is round, juicy and succulent, with no hard edges. This medium to full-bodied, well-made, fruit-driven wine should be drunk over the next 5-7 years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. (RP)  (6/2015)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
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.
