2005 Haut-Marbuzet, St-Estèphe

SKU #1151527 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of milk chocolate, walnut shell and currants follow through to a full body, with soft, velvety tannins and a chewy finish. Serious depth of fruit here. Better in 2015 but so enticing now. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good saturated red-ruby. Deep, ripe, expressive aromas of black raspberry, coffee, mocha, menthol, black olive and chocolate truffle. Sweet, seamless and lush, offering excellent volume in the mouth and considerable early sex appeal. This boasts the exotic character of Haut-Marbuzet in spades. Sweet, long, large-scaled wine with fine-grained tannins arriving very late. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows intense aromas of blackberry, currant and spices. Full and rich, with a slightly earthy and funky undertone, but I like the decadence and richness. The tannins are polished. Best after 2013. Inner quote mark (3/2008)

Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This has the powerful damson-plum intensity of great cabernet sauvignon grown in the northern Médoc. The tannins are black but not aggressive, their stoniness cushioned by layers of fruit. There's also an umami character, something like woodland mushroom and the savory skin of tiny wild cherries. An elegant wine performing at the top of its terroir, this will be delicious around eight to 12 years from the vintage. Inner quote mark (10/2008)
