Château Haut Nadeau Red Bordeaux Blend Bordeaux Supérieur Cuvée Prestige 2005

Member Review by jtabor:

the nose is nice. the midpalate shows a dominant dark berry and possibly tabacco flavor. this one might be too young yet. either that or it may need to decant for quite a while

I may have popped this too early. I found it hot and high in acidity. On day 2, it was noticeably softer. On day 3, it crumbled. This bottle has been touted as a wine of good QPR by Robert Parker, Gary Vaynerchuk, and cellartracker. Would like a chance to try this in a couple more years.

Earthy, lots of minerals...fruit slow to evolve but does come through. Wholesome and tannic. Well priced.

Nice inviting dark ruby color, with medium legs. Nose has cherry, tobacco, pencil shavings, and hint of red carnation; slight earthiness. Ripe cherry and blue fruit on the palate. Nice balance of mid palate tannins and acid. Long pleasant finish with a slight tart-cherry note. Great value and really easy-drinking once decanted for 1/2 hour or more. I like.

    A smooth white that starts with a tangy-sweet flavor green apple fruits which subtley changes to a pleasurable dry finish. Well worth the price.

    A surprisingly approachable young red, this Bordeaux showcases ripe blueberry and blackberry fruits, a round, full body and soft tannins. The purity of fruit and fresh, vibrancy of the medium-bodied frame give the wine an easy, soft texture with plenty of flavor. A refreshing change from the many tannic monsters of Bordeaux — a red that one can enjoy in the short term.

    Graceful and mature this Bordeaux Supérieur shows smoke charcoal cedar and balsamic wrapped around tart cherry fruit and wet leaf earthiness. Nice complexity and sense-of-place at this price point.

    Wow! If you are interested in a killer value, Chandacirc;teau Haut Nadeau is the right way to go! It has an exquisite aroma of jammy plums with a hint of cedar. The flavors reconfirm the nose with over-ripened plums, dark cherries, raspberries and a cedar dusting. It has a slight, delightful tartness with nice acidity. Would go beautifully with prime rib or braised lamb shanks.

    This lower pedigree wine represents undeniable quality/value rapport in 2005. This vintage is so deep in quality among the better run, less heralded estates, that these wines should appeal to readers looking for terrific values from Bordeaux. Most of these wines are Merlot-based and will be drinkable young. Sleeper of the vintage.
