International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 91+
Good bright cherry-red. High-pitched, very classy aromas of pungent red berries, red cherry, rose petal and mint. Juicy and tightly wound, showing less texture today than the Mazy or the Clos de la Roche (last year it seemed fuller). But this is impressively pure and precise, thanks to a very firm spine of tannins and acids. Extremely young and juicy wine, finishing with sneaky intensity of flavor and a lingering note of maraschino cherry. I may be underestimating this.

Burghound/Allen Meadows (BH) Review

BH 94
A more deeply pitched and very cool nose offers up very ripe dark berry fruit, truffles, spice hints and a touch of the sauvage, the latter of which can also be found on the rich, full and sweet medium weight plus flavors that deliver fine punch and precision on the delineated and exceptionally pure mineral infused finish. While always a fine wine in the Rousseau stable, 2005 is one of the best vintages that I have seen and it will age well.
