Winemaker's Notes

This vintage is rich and dense with lots of excellent black fruit, with power and balance in harmony.

Critical Acclaim

"There's beautiful aromas of violet and other flowers, with fruity undertones. Full-bodied, with round, polished tannins that caress the palate. Long and very balanced. Harmonious. Best after 2012. 2,915 cases made. "
92 Points

"The Burgundy firm of Jacques Prieur, who now owns this Pomerol estate, has fashioned an outstanding 2005 from one of the less prestigious terroirs of the appellation. It is a richly fruit, exuberant, flamboyant wine offering a sensual display of black cherries, sandy, loamy soil, subtle herbs, and spice. Lusciously textured with no astringency, it can be consumed now and over the next 10-12 years."
90 Points

"Saturated ruby-red. Sexy aromas of plum, redcurrant, truffle and meat. Supple, round and gentle, with fat flavors of plum, and licorice pastille. Long, ripe finish features supple tannins and hints of leather and game. Range: 88-90"
