Tasting notes: This is truly a masterpiece. A majestic, complex, rich, intoxicating nose with exciting, racy, pure cassis notes leads on to a sublime, multi, multi-layered palate with a precise, cool, silky core of the ripest blackcurrants with a generous dollop of double cream.This really is a spectacular, flawless wine that not only rivals the other 2005 First Growths but surpasses 2 or 3 of them. Whether this is as great as the 1928 or 1945 is just too soon to call, but this will definitely be one of the greatest cases you might ever have in your cellar. Awe-inspiring! Alc 13% Grapes: Grapes: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 1% Cabernet Franc
