Tasting Notes

According to the Wine Spectator: "Delivers mineral, licorice and ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish of mineral and spice. Clean and crisp. The best ever from this producer. Best after 2008." (Web 08) The 2005 vintage was exceptional across the board, possibly the finest since 1982. Conisistent at every level, the Paloumey offers an accessible young Bordeaux with plenty of concentration and tannic structure to let it evolve for a decade or more. Wine Spectator loved it for its fresh plum and berry characterisitcs.

    This is riper and richer than the ’04 version and shows very velvety tannins and spice on the finish. Also clean and crisp, this is a little bolder and heavier. A great value for the vintage! Decant this with food tonight, but be sure to save several bottles for a few years down the road.
