Château la Tour Haut-Brion Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

.. The 2005 is a 2,000-case blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, and 27%Cabernet Sauvignon, a relatively high amount of Cabernet Sauvignon for aPessac-Leognan property. It offers classic notes of scorched earth, asphalt,smoky black cherries, and roasted herbs. Medium-bodied and tannic, it is anexcellent, but not inspirational claret that should be at its finest between2013-2025. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - 01-Apr-2008)

RP: Beginning in 2006, this vineyard became part of La Mission-Haut-Brion�s second wine, so 2005 will be the final vintage of La Tour Haut-Brion. That�s a shame as many superb, under-the-radar wines were produced under this moniker in the forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, and early eighties. The 2005 is a 2,000-case blend of 41% Cabernet Franc, 32% Merlot, and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, a relatively high amount of Cabernet Sauvignon for a Pessac-Leognan property. It offers classic notes of scorched earth, asphalt, smoky black cherries, and roasted herbs. Medium-bodied and tannic, it is an excellent, but not inspirational claret that should be at its finest between 2013-2025.

JS: Shows interesting aromas of chocolate, meat and berry, with hints of fresh c�pe. Turns floral and aromatic. Full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a medium finish. Very balanced and pretty. Elegant and seductive. This is the last year of LTHB. Best after 2014. 2,250 cases made.
