DESCRIPTION

 

Allen Meadows, Burghound, April 2007.Deep ruby. A nicely fresh and expressive nose of just crushed red pinot fruit and warm earth aromas dissolves into the supple, sweet and mouth coating flavors supported by firm but fine tannins and outstanding finishing complexity. A very impressive effort and definitely worth a look. 90-92 points

 

Stephen Tanzer's Int'l Wine Cellar, March/April 2007.
Full ruby-red. Ripe but rather brooding aromas of dark cherry, meat, leather, licorice, menthol, and smoky oak. Sweet, dense and stuffed with sappy maraschino cherry and mineral flavors. Broad and well-balanced, with noteworthy depth and serious underlying structure. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and a continuing element of smoky oak. 88-91 points

 


Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry said that 2005 gave a “positively superb quality of fruit, particularly in the sense of fruit/acid/tannin balance. Moreover, the crop was so clean that it was almost not worth the trouble to bother sorting. .... When you have fruit this good with such ripe structural elements, the vinification is usually easy and so it was with 2005 too. For me, as good as 1999 is, 2005 is better still.” M. de Janvry was not boasting about the fruit quality because it is reflected in the quality of resulting wines and I heartily recommend these ‘05s to you.
