Tasting Note 鑒賞:
A big Châteauneuf: fruits red, black fruits, spices, garrigue. 2005 is great vintage. Health condition of grapevines was flawless, grapes were harvested in perfect ripeness. Result is flawless, with a nice saltiness brought by the old grenaches. The elegance of its tannins does not impose a long ageing for this Châteauneuf.
