    I first visited this property in 1985 and I loved their wines of the 80s, but not so much in the 90s. Well, they went back on track in the 2000s and this 2005 is a great value. Sweet, plummy, and toasty. Plenty of blackberry fruits on the palate and nose. Excellent structure for five more years in the cellar, but the tannins are round so you can drink it now. Decant and enjoy with a prime rib roast.

    When we can go back to the sweet-drinking wells of 2005 and 2009 and pull out deals like this, it's always a wonderful thing! Chateau Larmande is an overlooked property in St. Emilion, despite being one of the oldest producers in the region. In fact, some of their vines are more than 100 years old, giving the chateau some of the oldest and deepest roots on the Right Bank. After more than a decade in the bottle, this wine is in a beautiful spot and if you're looking for a great dinner wine that will show well straight out of the bottle, this is your guy. If you're headed to the steakhouse, and you need a slam dunk Bordeaux for $50 or less, this is what I'm putting in your hand. The Merlot fruit is still soft and supple despite the wine's age, and there's an integrated silkiness that glides over the palate with subtle secondary notes like earth and tobacco.
