Tasting Notes:

2005 Fonseca Panascal Single Quinta Vintage Port
***91 Points - Wine Enthusiast ***
***90 Points - Wine Spectator ***

From the very good 2005 vintage the Fonseca Panascal offers an opaque purple black with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is rich and exuberant, brimming with dark, seductive blackberry and cassis aromas laced with liquorice and treacle. The round, luscious palate follows through with a dense jammy infusion of wild berries and a mouthful of velvety tannins.

Barros Port, 2005

Vintage Port (Offer includes Original Barros Box as pictured)

The Barros 2005 vintage port has a very solid, vivid crimson colour and a nose that is rather spirity at first, with a fresh, almost herbal edge to bright raspberry and vinous fruit, in a style that immediately suggests this is a lighter, more fresh style of Port. On the palate there is plenty of sweetness, with cassis and ripe, sweet liquidised cherry, but also a touch of raisin and date-like fruit. A certain silky, vanilla and thick plum underpinning emerges into the finish, but so does some quite grippy tannin and again a slightly spiritous edge in a wine that perhaps will become a little more harmonious with time in bottle.

Bollinger, 2005

La Grande Annee Champagne (Comes in Original Bollinger gift Box)

Grande Annee, the name, signifies that Bollinger's vintage champagne is only released during 'great' years.

The Grande Annee blend comes only from a particularly fine harvest. When such a harvest occurs the House selects its best wines, cru by cru and grape variety by grape variety - the key to the particular year. Each wine is individually fermented in oak casks prior to blending. On average, the blend is composed of 65% pinot noir and 35% chardonnay.

Reviews
Forward aromas of flowers, toast and autolysis compete for attention on the delightful bouquet. There’s huge power on the dense,

Chateau Batailley, 2005

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification

Review:

On the nose, this 2005 Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe is clean, pronounced and black fruit-led. As we may expect from a “left bank” wine that is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, it is the characteristics of this grape that lead. Black cherry and ripe plum along with a restrained note of blackcurrant form the bulk of the bouquet of this lovely Pauillac, although subtle oak notes of cedar and toast are also present and well integrated. Good, long finish.




Once in the mouth, this 2005 Chateau Batailley Grand Cru Classe Pauillac is dry, with a high level of acidity and tannin that look to make this wine suitable for prolonged aging.

Chateau Cantemerle, 2005

Haut Medoc 5me Cru Classe

This bordeaux has bags of fruit, tannin and acidity, all tied up in an impeccably-balanced, polished package. Sweet cassis fruit is accompanied by a spicy edge and a long, fresh lift. This is very pretty now but ideally wants another five years to really get going, and will easily keep for another five after that.

Chateau d'Armailhac, 2005

Pauillac, 5th Growth classification

D’Armailhac’s 2005 offers notes of cedar wood, forest floor, black and red currants, spice box and earth. It is medium-bodied, relatively soft for a 2005, and best drunk over the next 12-15 years. Drink 2015-2025.

Score: 90 Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015
This powerful, tannic, structured effort from Mouton-Rothschild’s stable is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an earthy nose dominated by black currants and toasty, smoky oak. Medium to full-bodied with relatively high tannin,

Chateau de la Riviere, 2005

Fronsac

This wine from the outstanding 2005 vintage is drinking well. The Fronsac appelation delivered what was promised: an old school wine experience with a real sense of place. Very earthy, dusty tannins, minerals, smoky plum fruit, no alcohol jumping out, beautiful balance. Just a great table wine that worked so well with food, cheeses, sausage, etc. Lovely stuff.

Chateau Laforge, 2005

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe

*** 93 Points - Robert parker ***

Reviews
"From another of the properties of cult/boutique winemaker Jonathan Malthus, the 2005 Laforge is largely dominated by its unfiltered, old vine Merlot component. With dark chocolate, raspberry and espresso notes, sweet cassis, loads of earth, spice, and medium to full body, this is an attractive, bigger-than-usual style for Laforge, with some tannins still to resolve. It can be drunk now or cellared for another 10-15 years." Erobert Parker 2015.
