Château La Clotte Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$64.95

One of the sexiest, most hedonistic wines of the vintage, La Clotte’s 2005 (fewer than 1,400 cases produced from this 10-acre vineyard) is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. An exquisite perfume of underbrush, charcoal, kirsch, spice box, chocolate, and espresso soars from the glass of this full-bodied claret...low acidity for the vintage, sweet tannin, and a fleshy, multilayered mouthfeel... Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. Robert Parker

2005 vintage. A great vintage and a very good, small vineyard making great wines. This was a deep red to purple with fruit remaining up front followed by meat, pepper/spice and graphite. Classic, worthwhile and affirming as to the power of good Bordeaux.
