Château les Baraillots Margaux 2005

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

In a world of rising Bordeaux prices, this superb Margaux really delivers at an affordable price. Itandrsquo;s grown within a few kilometers of the famed Chateau Margaux, which sells for around $1500 a bottle; Chateau Les Baraillots sells for less than two percent of that. Upon first whiff, one notices a nice kick of dark berry notes with a hint of tar. After some aeration, the supple fruit really comes to the forefront. The mouth feel is completely round and soft for a Cabernet-based blend. There is a backbone of silky tannins, with a touch of coffee and vanilla spice on the finish and a splash of black cherry and blueberry fruit to round things out. This wine would pair with many different dishes, but I would stick with red meat, perhaps a heavily marbled rib eye with sautandeacute;ed mushrooms and asparagus.

Offering full aromas of cherry fruit and an interesting array of spices and mint, it has a full and rounded richness that will keep but can be enjoyed now. A great wine from this top quality Bordeaux commune.

Offering up a rich bouquet of black cherry, eucalyptus, and winter spice, this is definitely drinking well already (as are so many of the 2000s) and is a great choice for food or for just sitting around.
