    Winemaker's Notes:

    Superb presentation. Black robe with a very slight amber-colored meniscus. This wine breathes opulence, richness and density with notes of black fruit, mocha and liquorice. Grandiose on the palate with monumental strength and elegance, and generous, remarkably mellowed tannins. A wonderful wine to lay down and enjoy in several years time!

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark in color, with gorgeous aromas of dark chocolate and ripe blackberry, raspberry and spices. Full-bodied, with Indian spices, cappuccino and blueberry. The quality of the tannins is lovely. Best after 2012.

    An undeniable sleeper of the vintage, this property, owned by a French aircraft manufacturing company, has produced the finest Dassault made to date. The 2005 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with beautiful aromas of blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and licorice. Silky-textured, medium to full-bodied, hedonistic, lush, pure, and long, it is one of the few 2005s that can be drunk now, although it should improve for 10-15 years. Add to Print List

    Lay Down for Now, as the 2005 St.Emilion's are still Tannic and youthfull. Should be approachable 2020 and 2030 then I can give a true rating if it comes out at 99.
