- +

2005 is a historically dry year. Despite a wet April, the rains will remain scarce until the harvest. Temperatures are high throughout the year. 2005 presents climatic conditions very close to those of the legendary 1949 vintage. These allowed us on the eve of the harvest to obtain small grape berries.

It is a blend of Merlot Noir: 56%, Cabernet Sauvignon: 39% and Cabernet Franc: 5%

The color is so dense that the wine appears almost black, atramentary.

On the nose, the aromatic intensity of this wine is breathtaking. Notes of smoke, tan, roasted coffee beans. The fresh fruit is also present: currant, cherry. From the start, this wine surprises with its density.

It is long, creamy, broad, powerful and fresh. It invades you, penetrates you. Power and harmony are the distinctive features of this vintage. The aromatic persistence is incredibly long.

It is a wine to keep for which care will be taken to allow the bottles to age in the cellar, lying down, away from light and noise with a humidity of around 70%.

It is a wine which is bordering on its peak nowadays but whose asymptote can continue to evolve until the 2040s. Successive tastings are to be done in order to measure the evolution of the wine.
