2005 Bordeaux - Best Vintage of the Century (so far)

Our guest speaker was Michelle Paris, Master of Wine Candidate, DipWSET and Certified Sommelier. The Wines Château La Lagune (Haut Medoc) $68 A final blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from the Frey family, the 2005 is a gorgeous La Lagune, and one of the first great ones under the Frey administration. This wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful nose of sandalwood, black raspberries, and cassis, silky sweet tannin, medium to full body, and a textured, long, pure mouthfeel and finish. This wine is probably 3-4 years away from prime-time drinking, but it should evolve gorgeously for another 20-25 years. Robert M. Parker, Jr. 94 points. Château Malescot
