Tasting Note:

The 2005 is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, with 5% of press wine added and 65% new oak. Only 37% of the total production is destined for the Grand Vin, which has visibly upgraded the quality to an exceptional level. The wine has a fascinating nose of blueberry, blackberry, truffles and chocolate; at the outset it is firm yet bursting with ripeness on the palate, rich fruit and grippy tannins meeting in absolute equilibrium, then musters even more concentration to build gently until it eventually drops off gradually in a long, lingering finish. Outstanding.
