A microscopic quantity of 200 cases are produced by Tony Balu, the regisseur of Clos Fourtet, the premier grand cru classe that has made a name for itself over the last few vintages. A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2005 Pierre de Lune represents decadent St.-Emilion at its finest. This voluptuous, opulent, baroque-styled wine possesses a deep ruby/purple color, an extraordinary nose of black truffles, roasted herbs, incense, chocolate, coffee, blackberries, blueberries, and new saddle leather. It is a complex, modern-styled, enormously endowed, opulent, fleshy offering...
Red-ruby. Mocha, minerals, smoke and hot rocks on the nose. Fat, sweet and sexy, with a lush, seamless texture and noteworthy volume. Expressive flavors of coffee, mocha and cocoa (this is aging entirely in Taransaud barrels, 50% new). Finishes with broad, palate-saturating tannins and a refreshing firm edge of acidity. Impressive.
