Saturated ruby color with a nuance of vermillon, 2005 Les Pavots
reveals an deep bouquet of black cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry
and blackberry, with nuances of cedar, cacao, cigar box, black tea,
graphite, a stylish 'guarigue' touch, forest floor, sweet vanilla and
cloves. Extremely full-bodied, this wine offers the same rich, ripe
fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is full and round,
with elegant tannins, which lead to a long finish. Complex, 2005
Les Pavots will benefit from another year of cellaring for near term enjoyment and will age gracefully for a decade or more.
