*Good Value* Great vintages are supposed to produce great values, and here is the single most priceworthy wine in this Issue. Its aromas are on the tight side at present but do offer glimmers of black cherries, caramel, cedar and dried bark, and its palatal impressions build from there. If still developing in flavors, the wine's suggestions of suppleness to come are nicely aligned with sweet fruit ready to emerge with just a bit of time.
This is an excellent wine from Beaumont, a property sandwiched between the famous appellations of Pauillac and Margaux. Their 2005 has attractive plum, black cherry and blackcurrant fruit dominating the nose along with medium body, soft tannins and a round, juicy mouthfeel. Drinkable now, this wine should continue to offer delicious consumption over the next 4-5 years. (RP)
Soft and velvety, with blackberry, mineral and light mint character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a caressing texture. There's lovely balance to this. Best after 2011. (JS)
