...Gerard Perse has accomplished miraculous things at Monbousquet... the 2005 exhibits plenty of toasty oak, roasted herb, meat juice, blackberry, cherry, and spice characteristics along with a touch of incense. Full-bodied and opulent, with an atypically rigid structure, this is a remarkable achievement... it admirably reflects Gerard Perse's obsessive commitment to excellence... Robert Parker

A tad ripe and cloying for my palate. More reminiscent of a Napa style that doesn't speak too much of its own terroir. Been like this for a while it seems. But enjoy it nonetheless.

#halfbottle #stemillion Needs to be drunk now - lacks structure and nuance. But still enjoyable!

Very pleased with this as first of a case. This should continue to improve for a number of years.
