Bordeaux 2005 Connoisseur 5
1) Chateau Monbousquet 2005, France
…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 turned it into one of the more stunning, modern-styled wines of Bordeaux.
A blend of approximately two-thirds Merlot, one-third Cabernet Franc and 8-10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of incense.
Full-bodied and opulent, with an atypically rigid structure, this is a remarkable achievement for such a humble terroir.
It admirably reflects Gerard Perse’s obsessive commitment to excellence.
Look for this 2005 to hit its stride in 7-8 years, and last for 15-20.
2) Chateau Clos Beauregard 2005, France
Lovely aroma of sweet berries, hints of very fine Oak, forest herbs and figs.
Elegant and supple, this wine grows in intensity and richness. Loaded with black fruits, this medium bodied beauty teases palate and the longer it sits in the glass, the smoother the finish.
Young and alive, this delicious, classy wine has a great future. Surely the finest wine produced at this chateau.
3) Chateau Goulee 2005, France
Proprietor Michel Reybrie and his winemaker, Jean-Guillaume Prats, have fashioned a brilliant blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot.
The dark purple-hued 2005 reveals a sumptuous bouquet of licorice, black currants, black olives, smoke, and damp earth.
Fleshy and supple-textured with good tannin as well as decent acidity, this seriously-endowed, complex effort is asking to be savoured over the next 12-14 years.
