Winemaker's Notes

This wine comes from one of the greatest vintages to date, as is evident from the wine's deep violet color and its potential for long aging. The nose is complex and elegant, showing jammy black fruit and a touch of black currant liqueur, aromas which are the signs of a mature harvest. In the mouth the wine comes across as direct and firm thanks to tannins which are still expressive and youthful. Its texture on the palate is dense and attractive; cooked black fruit comes across in its body and finish, with an element of spice and black pepper. This is wine made for pleasure and can age for around five years more without losing its charm. It can accompany red meats cooked rare, pigeon, beef, and feathered game.

Critical Acclaim

"One of the least expensive wines from Gerard Perse's three Cotes de Castillon estates, this is unquestionably the softest and most immediately accessible. Its dark ruby color is followed by a concoction of ripe, sweet black currant and cherry fruit, incense, spring flowers, and spice. Drink this richly fruity 2005 over the next 4-5 years."

Nice dark ruby color. Expressive but not overpowering bouquet with roses, tobacco and dark cherries. Slightly fruity and dry on the palate. Crisp. Good food wine, try with dark chocolate. Still wound pretty tight, this one will be develop and be better in 5 years. A good value.
