    Winemaker's Notes:

    An extraordinary vintage for the vineyard. Although dry, except for some much-needed rain in August and September, conditions were not excessively hot, producing very sweet, deeply-colored grapes with high acidity levels, lots of fruity flavor and tannic potential of a kind rarely equalled.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Not surprisingly, the 2005 Cuvee Speciale Peby, which was inaugurated in 1998, is a blockbuster. Yields were low (25 hectoliters per hectare) for this sensational 100% Merlot from 45-year old vines. The inky/black/purple color is followed by a super-rich wine boasting plenty of graphite, pain grille, melted chocolate, black currant, blackberry, smoke, and truffle characteristics. It is extremely powerful, concentrated, and extracted. Give it a decade of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. If there is one reservation to heed, it is the very high level of tannins.
    Rating: 95+?

    Black in color, with a very extracted nose of new wood, blackberry and sweet tobacco. Full-bodied, with raisin, spice and coffee bean character. A full-throttle style. This is a big, juicy Merlot.

    Wine Spectator

    Ruby-red. Superripe black cherry, chocolate and coffee liqueur on the nose. Lush, sweet and superconcentrated, with an almost port-like richness to its exotic berry liqueur flavors. Underlying minerality gives shape to this outsized wine, which finishes with big, fine-grained, building tannins. This and the Faugeres are both at the extreme of ripeness in 2005 without quite crossing the line. Fans of sheer size may rate these wines even higher.
