2005 Haut-Brisson La Reserve, St-Emilion

SKU #1047414 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This well-run property of the Kwok family has produced some great wines in their short tenure as owners. The 2005 La Réserve is an open-knit, sexy, opulent style of wine. Very forward, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color and plenty of crème de cassis, kirsch, licorice and new saddle leather. Spicy and full-bodied, it is best drunk over the next 7-10 years.

K&L Notes

This wine has everything in perfect proportion. Tobacco, coffee, and toasty aromas. Extremely sweet on the palate. Ripe, soft tannins and plenty of acidity for cellaring. Lots of blackberry fruit and a dash of new oak. Tremendous structure. I love this wine. (Clyde Beffa Jr., K&L Wines)

This voluptuous 2005 has explosive aromas of fruit, flowers, damp earth and toast that are complex and alluring. Deep purple and velvety textured with an array of black fruit flavors that seamlessly fan out, ending with velvety tannins and a super-long finish. Although not "old school" by any stretch, this is toasty, rich, absolutely stunning and way too easy to like.

I loved the 2005 Haut Brisson Reserve for its concentration and underlying sweetness.
