Deep ruby color in the glass with subdued aromas of forest floor, black currant and cassis just managing to eke through on this young red. However, entirely drinkable now with an abundance of dark fruits coating the palate along with loamy earth flavors and cedar spice. Densely packed, scrumptious AC Bordeaux suitable for early to mid-term consumption, but should also age well as the wine is balanced and finely structured with well-integrated tannins.

Deep, inky purple, this powerful, yet refined red is 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. Toast and cedar envelop the plush blueberry and black raspberry fruit notes. With a rich, enticing nose and a silky-smooth mouthfeel, the Château Plaisance maintains classic structure at a very reasonable price.

Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of plum, currant, mocha and tobacco, complemented by chocolate and leather nuances. Sweet, lush and pliant, with moderate depth but good grip to the flavors of current, tobacco and earth. Finishes with ripe, supple tannins and good lingering fruit. A forward and satisfying 2005 at a gentle price.

Winemaker's Notes:

Based in the village of Vacquiers in the south east part of the appellation, Marc Penavayre makes wines that are a sheer delight to drink. The vines are planted on the highest terrace of the Tarn at an altitude of about 200m. The soil is composed of alluvial deposits, essentially pebbles, gravel and silt. These deposits provide a check to the vine's vigour which is what is needed to produce quality grapes. The grapes are not destalked, but cuvaisons are relatively short: 6 days for Gamay; 7-8 for the Négrette and a bit longer for the Syrah and Cabernet. He makes several styles of wine, of which the Cuvée Thibaut is one. An elegant Négrette/Syrah blend, named in honour of his son, and from low yields of 35hl/ha, it is toned, honed and polished from twelve months in barrels, a smooth, balanced wine that merits its Coup de Coeur in the Guide Hachette. The Thibaut has an intense brilliant and lively dark red colour. The nose is very marked by aromas of spice and stewed fruit, and is fully expressive of typicity. On the palate, the wine is rounded and balanced with a finish of tannins that are present yet refined. Time for some grilled country bread rubbed with garlic and tomato and the best Bayonne ham.
