Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) 95 points Robert Parker: As usual, La Gomerie's 2005 is a sexy, dense plum/purple-tinged effort. From a 7-acre, 32-year old site planted with 100% Merlot, it exhibits a sumptuous bouquet of white chocolate, roasted coffee, blackberries, black cherries, graphite, and toasty oak. This is a modern-styled, decadently rich St.-Emilion, but because of the vintage's higher acidity and more tannic structure, this offering possesses a more classic framework than usual. A sensational wine, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years, and age beautifully for 15-20. (Apr 2008)

  • International Wine Cellar
    (1995 Vintage) Rating: 89(+?) - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 78, May/June 1998. Bright, saturated red-ruby color. Jammy but reticent aromas of black cherry, woodsmoke and leather. Silky in the mouth, with black fruit flavors complicated by nuances of woodsmoke and roasted coffee. A shapely wine that still a bit closed following the bottling. But already displays sneaky length, and the tannins are quite fine. May yet merit a 90-point rating. This is around 13% alcohol, with no chaptalization.
