Château Clos St. Martin St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$275

St.-Emilion's smallest vineyard produces so little wine (600 or so cases) that it is virtually impossible to find. This beautiful site (somewhat ghoulishly situated adjacent to St.-Emilion's cemetery) produces what I have often called the "Lafleur of St.-Emilion." Classic notes of crushed rocks, spring flowers, kirsch, and even blacker fruits along with stunning nobility, complexity, and precision emerge from this beauty. The extraordinary 2005 possesses fabulous concentration, terrific texture, length, and depth, and huge tannins, so it requires at least a decade of bottle age. It is one of the vintage's most compelling efforts. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2040. Robert Parker
