Chateau de Launay Bordeaux Superieur 2005

External Review:

Wine Advocate ReviewThis used to be an insipid, occasionally decent generic Bordeaux that sold for a song. The 2003 is something else altogether. The renowned Tuscan oenologist, Stefano Chioccioli, is working here, and yields in 2003 were an amazingly low 12 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 75% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc, it is a dense purple-colored effort offering notes of chocolate, espresso, scorched earth, and berry flavors. Supple textured, medium-bodied, chunky, and fleshy, it should drink well for 4-5 years. Drink 2004 - 2009.
