Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: 'This wine has completely shut down since it's been bottled but exhibits a<br/>saturated ruby/purple color, high levels of tannin, and sweet, noble black<br/>currant fruit intermixed with some licorice, espresso roast, and pain grille.<br/>In the vernacular, it is closed for business, with medium to full body, high<br/>levels of tannin, and good acidity in a more structured, classic style than the<br/>2003. This is a big, traditionally made wine to forget for a good 5-8 years.<br/>'<br/><br/>(Robert Parker - www.erobertparker.com - 30-Apr-2005)

These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less
