This is yet another good 2005 Bordeaux, and a blend of 70% merlot and 30% cabernet franc. It has an aroma of ripe berries and tobacco. On the palate, there are tannins and good length. Perhaps the mid palate is not as full as I would have liked, but I found it hard to put the glass down. Utterly drinkable. 88 points (7.3/10).
Price: around $50
Would I buy it having tasted it? Yes
