Bordeaux 2005 – Haut-Médoc and Médoc

Deep colour and fragrant fruit characterises all the Médoc appellation wines in 2005, and it would have needed a very poor winemaker to introduce vegetal notes and a stupid one to over-extract. Wines with charm and persistence. As for Haut-Médoc, the Cabernets shone out in 2005, adding grip and length to the very ripe (but not over-ripe as in many 2003s) Merlots. A vast selection of successful wines, all representative of their terroir. Steven Spurrier
