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.

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 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 Duhart Milon Rothschild , 2005

Pauillac 4th Growth Classification

*** 93 points - Robert Parker ***


Reviews
"This property, which has benefitted enormously from tremendous investments from the Rothschild family that owns Lafite, has turned out a dense purple-colored wine in 2005. Offering broad, expansive, supple and silky tannin as well as loads of Asian plum sauce, blackcurrants, and sweet cherries, this wine is seductive, medium to full-bodied, and luscious. This successful effort from the Rothschilds should continue to drink well for at least another two decades.e robert parker.

Chateau Jean Faure, 2005

St Emilion Grand Cru

This is a world-class Bordeaux red from Saint-Emilion. Its class is hinted at by the fact that close neighbours include the illustrious Châteaux of Cheval Blanc, Conseillante and Figeac. This is the sort of wine that is a real find: because the property underperformed under its previous owners, it has gradually been rebuilding its reputation since it was purchased by Olivier Decelle in 2004. Current releases are now revealing what
potential this property has.


a special wine estate this is. In September 2012 the work here was rewarded and Jean Faure became a Grand Cru Classé again.

Reviews:
A very ripe nose with kirsch, plum, a touch of nail varnish and creme de menthe with a lot of toasty new oak.

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.
