A classic and stunning claret from an excellent vintage!
Dark berries, violets and cigar box notes and silky, full tannins with a wonderful long finish.
“I know I sound like a broken record, but here is another estate that may have produced its finest wine … ever. Rauzan Gassies rarely merits a 90-point or higher score, but their 2005 is a beautifully pure, structured, multi-textured cuvee boasting an inky/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor, black currants, vitamins, and iron. This pure, rich, moderately tannic, long Margaux will be at its peak between 2009-2025.” – 90/93pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2006
