Château Lers Loumede 2005

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2005
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Côtes de Blaye

There is a deep garnet colour in the wine and strong legs – for a Bordeaux but typical for the vintage. On the nose are strong berries with a bit of oak along with hints of almond.

The pallet is full of robust flavours of blackcurrant and strong tannins that still need some time to integrate into the wine. Quite nice and should age well for a few more years.

Château Marquis de Vauban La Cuvée du Roy 2005

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Vintage: 2005
Type: Bordeaux Blend
Country: France – Bordeaux – Côtes de Blaye

The wine has a deep red colour throughout the glass. The tannins are well integrated, if a bit young. On the pallet there is a rush of berries, cassis and blackcurrant, quite bold for a Bordeaux. The finish is long and sumptuous. The wine is still quite young and will happily age for another 5-10 years.

75% Merlot 25% Cabernet Sauvignon.
