Château Pipeau Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005
Die intensive Aromatik lässt auf einen überaus gelungenen, typischen Bordeaux schliessen: reife Beerenfrucht, präsente Ausbauaromen, streng-herbe Noten. Die grosse Stärke beim CHâTEAU PIPEAU liegt in der Balance zwischen der fruchtigen Struktur und der kräftigen Textur. Das Finale ist anhaltend, gradlinig und konsistent: Das Versprechen in der Nase wird im Abgang gehalten.
Had this tonight with friends. Right at pop and pour, it was a wonderful experience. The nose was fruity with a hint of coffee. The front palette brings flavors of cherries and blueberries. It was one of the better right bank bourdeauxs I've had the pleasure of drinking. FInish was silky and unbelieveably smooth. This is a bottle that you'd enjoy drinking by itself. As for food pairings, I see this pairing also well with the less traditional red wine accompaniments - I'd pop this with grilled chicken, pork, even meatier grilled fishes. RP 90
Decent but not spectacular bodeaux. full-bodied, very drinkable

What a decadent, fruit-driven St.-Emilion! From a proprietor who delivers the goods in an upfront, gorgeously luscious, hedonistic manner, this lovely fruit-bomb reveals a dense purple color, a perfumed nose of sweet black cherries and black currants...

Beautiful blackberry, cherry and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with coffee, smoke and berry character. Long and stylish. Velvety and balanced. Best after 2013. 15,830 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Pipeau 1500ml
