How the 2005 Bordeaux first growths taste now

A recent tasting of the acclaimed 2005 vintage in Bordeaux gave Andy Howard MW the chance to see how each wine from the five first growth estates is developing.

A recent tasting showcasing the five Bordeaux first growths from the 2005 vintage provided the perfect opportunity to review how the wines, from the very high quality, albeit slow-maturing vintage, are developing.

The tasting, hosted by the expanding Oeno Group was one of three and was introduced by Justin Knock MW who explained that just one bottle of each château’s wine was available to taste at each tasting session.

Without the ability to account for bottle variation, a couple of the wines may not have been showing their best, which is reflected in the tasting notes.
