There is no question that the Adams family (Americans) have done an incredible job resurrecting the quality of this famous estate on the hillsides of St.-Emilion. The 2005 exhibits a saturated opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of black cherry and cassis fruit, some serious power, extract and richness, high tannin, and a hint of earthy minerality. Full-bodied, rich, and still strikingly youthful, this wine has another 20-25 years ahead of it. (NM)
This is a rich and powerful red still with lots of toasted oak and ripe fruit. Almost raisin character. Still needs time to soften but a big and concentrated style. Buttery new wood. Almost new world.
Huge, bitter chocolate-flavored wine, spiced with cinnamon, sweet herbs and intense new wood flavors. It benefits from very ripe fruit, but with all its great richness, the wine manages to keep a sense of balance, the acidity cutting through the opulence to leave a fresh finish. (RV)
