2005 Chateau Lagrange St. Julien

750ml | SKU 36169 | 44 Available
93 VM

The 2005 Lagrange was picked from 21 September until 10 October. It has a harmonious and vigorous bouquet with blackberry, cedar, tobacco aromas and just a light estuarine scent that emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins a...


2005 Chateau Haut Bergey Rouge Pessac

750ml | SKU 36040 | Available
92 WA

One of the finest under-the-radar estates in Pessac-Leognan, Haut-Bergey’s 2005 (a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot) offers up aromas of scorched earth, wet stones, burning embers, charcoal, and copious black currant and cherry fruit. The su...


2005 Chateau Croix Labrie St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36101 | 10 Available
94 WA

As most vintages of this small garagiste estate tend to be, the 2005 Croix de Labrie is truly sumptuous stuff. Made from 100% Merlot (only 300 cases produced), it possesses an inky/purple color to the rim as well as a nose that smells like blueberry and b...


2005 Chateau Monbousquet - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36112 | 10 Available
95 WA

From a less than noble terroir in Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens, Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet. Prior to his acquisition of this property in the mid-nineties, this wine tasted like watered-down Beaujolais, but Perse has turne...


2005 Chateau Clos L'Oratoire - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36144 | 12 Available
94 WA

From the Comte von Neipperg, his wines from this over-achieving estate always deliver an aromatic fireworks display of cedar wood, Christmas fruitcake, roasted herbs, black olive, cassis and sweet kirsch. The 2005 has all that as well as ripe, well-integr...


2005 Chateau Rol Valentin St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36151 | Available
93+ WA

Proprietor Eric Prissette has fashioned a sensational 2005 with the assistance of consultant Stephane Derenoncourt. It boasts a deep purple color as well as a perfume of charcoal, smoked herbs, crushed rocks, blackberries, ripe cherries, and espresso bean...


2005 Chateau La Confession - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36167 | Available
95 WA

Opaque purple, with a sweet blue and blackberry perfume intertwined with licorice and graphite, the 2005 La Confession exhibits massive concentration and extraction, but this full-bodied wine pulls back from being over-the-top because of intrinsic freshne...


2005 Chateau Kirwan Margaux

750ml | SKU 36202 | 11 Available
92+ WA

I remember tasting a number of Kirwans from the 19th century that had held up surprisingly well for over 100 years. While the 2005 will probably not last that long, it may be one of the finest wines this estate has made in the last fifty years. This brill...


2005 Chateau Bellevue - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36208 | 11 Available
94 WA

The first bottle of 2005 Bellevue that I tasted had a maderized, oxidized nose that was off-putting. This note is from a second bottle. This second bottle showed absolutely no trace of oxidation, but did offer plenty of crushed, chalky minerality, notes o...


2005 Chateau Gracia St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36232 | Available
98+ WA

This estate is a tiny micro-treasure in St.-Emilion. Owned by Michel Gracia and consisting of less than five acres of vines, it turned out a final blend in 2005 of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, but only 5,000 bottles were produ...


2005 Chateau Pavie Macquin - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36262 | 10 Available
98 WA

It appears consumers can’t go wrong with any 2005 with the word “Pavie” in its name. This outstanding terroir, elevated to Premier Grand Cru Classe status in St.-Emilion’s reclassification, is run with impeccable attention to detail by Nicolas Thienpont, ...


2005 Chateau Fleur Cardinale St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36279 | Available
94 WA

This beautiful wine from Fleur Cardinale performed great in its youth, both from barrel as well as post-bottling. A gorgeous blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon made by the Decoster family, the 2005 provides more evidence th...


2005 Chateau Leoville Barton - St. Julien

750ml | SKU 36289 | Available
96 VM

The 2005 Léoville-Barton is clearly one of the wines of the vintage. Powerful and strapping in the glass, the 2005 is a big, big wine. Huge swaths of tannin wrap around a core of inky black fruit, new leather, spice, gravel, mocha and licorice. The win...


2005 Chateau Vieux Ch Certan Pomerol

750ml | SKU 36338 | 12 Available
95 VM

The 2005 Vieux Château Certan blossoms beautifully in the glass, but only after having been opened for several hours. Crushed flowers, mint, sweet herbs, anise and spice make a strong first impression. The 2005 is a VCC that makes its case more on fine...


2005 Chateau La Fleur Morange - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36354 | 11 Available
92-94 WA

Produced from 21 hectoliters per hectare, the 2005 La Fleur Morange, amazingly, achieved a natural alcohol content of 15%. The brilliant Claude Gros is the consulting oenologist for this cuvee, a 350-case garagiste offering. It boasts a saturated black/pu...


2005 Chateau Clos de Sarpe St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36095 | 11 Available
97 WA

Deep garnet-brick in color, the 2005 Clos de Sarpe has an absolute blockbuster nose of liquid licorice, violets, Chinese five spice and chocolate box with nuances of smoked meats, cigar box, cast iron pan and Marmite toast—really incredible intensity! The...


2005 Chateau Troplong Mondot - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36337 | Available
100 WA

The 2005 Troplong Mondot is a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc. It was emotional tasting this wine, thinking of the late Christine Valette, who made this compelling wine while battling with considerable courage against an insidious disease....


2005 Chateau Pavie - St. Emilion

750ml | SKU 36333 | Available
100 WA

Gerard Perse believes this is the greatest Pavie he's made to date, although certainly I would argue that list includes the 2000, as well as the 2009 and 2010, among his superstars. This wine, which I had both in the 2005 horizontal report in the Wine Adv...
