(2005 Vintage) Smoke, blackberry, stone, plum and fennel scents produce the aromatics. Medium/full bodied, with a fresh, zesty, tannic, spicy, black raspberry finish.
Wine Spectator"Best Poujeaux in decades. Fabulous richness and fruit, yet extremely refined in texture. Harmony through and through. Intense blackberry, cherry and violets, with a hint of oak. Full-bodied, with loads of ultrafine tannins. Goes on and on. Best after 2002. (27830 cases produced)"
DecanterRating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Round, ripe fruit palate with good tannins and structure.
