2005 Clos Marsalette, Pessac-Léognan

SKU #1046271 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2005 Clos Marsalette offers up a sexy bouquet of roasted herbs, charcoal embers, and sweet cherries and currants. The enticing perfume is followed by a lush, voluptuously-textured, medium to full-bodied claret with superb fruit as well as purity. Drink this elegant, light on its feet offering over the next 7-8 years. Inner quote mark (4/2008)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Moderately saturated medium red. Red fruits and mocha on the nose. Surprisingly supple and broad on the palate, with red fruit, game and mocha flavors complicated by sweet, soft spices. Ripe acids and sound acidity give this good balance for early drinking. With the average age of vines here just 10 years, says von Neipperg, 'we cannot push the tannins.' Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Deeply coloured, dark and spiced. Touch of eucalyptus in the ripeness. Then smooth chocolatey tannins and a firm, dry but fresh finish Inner quote mark (4/2009)
