Château Labourdette 2005

Member Review by jaredJmartin:

Deep purple in colour. Heady nose of dark berry slightly musty. Taste of oak, very dry. Let decant two hours after first tasting it. Smell of prunes comes out. The dryness and tanins have leveled out a bit. The wine is still a little on the "ruff" side. I had two bottles, im going to hang on to the second one for as long as I can, Parker recommends 15 years.

This was a disappointment. Wouldn't buy it again.

This puts the "ordinaire" in vin ordinaire. No complexity, no special features, nothing to cherish.

This is a nifty wine with FLAVOR and character. Not a mouthy wine, it is slightly "camphory", but makes a real impression. Dry. Great value

Open the bottle for about 1 hour. Fruity, fresh .. I enjoy it. Surprised this wine has such bad review :-)

Really enjoyed it. Had 2 bottles from WSJ wines and thought it was the best Bordeaux. Went very well with lamb chops and also with a rib eye steak.
