Château Puygueraud Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Francs 2005

Member Review by show:

Very good Bordeaux wine with structured tannin and layers/variety of flavors, but not matured yet. After decant and wait for two hours, the wine reveals its real appearance and taste. Best after 2010.

from total wine & more tampa: $20 ??: good lacing. smells of leather, black cherry, alcohol - chlorine(but not in a bad way). wonderful aroma. light smoky notes - smooth taste, good bite - fairly tannic. Really liked, but new to Bordeaux's.

I thought this wine was delightful. Priced right, earthy, light tanin, a very drinkable bordeaux.

No Cuvee Georges was produced in 2005, but the regular Puygueraud is a full-bodied, powerful effort boasting a black/purple color as well as super-sweet aromas of licorice, blackberries, raspberries, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Puygueraud 750ml

This Thienpont-owned vineyard was one of the first to make noises from what was a totally unknown appellation - Cotes de Francs. Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant, which helps explain this beautifully textured, dense purple-colored effort. The bouquet offers up aromas of tobacco leaf, black currants, cherries, charcoal, and a hint of background wood. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Bright medium ruby. Sexy, ripe aromas of plum, red currant, smoke and minerals. Big, plummy and round; unusually rich and ripe for this Cotes de Francs estate. A broad, chocolatey big boy that finishes with substantial but ripe, dusty tannins. Very satisfying.

The 2005 Puygueraud is a beautifully textured, dense purple-colored effort. The bouquet offers up aromas of tobacco leaf, black currants, cherries, charcoal, and a hint of background wood. Drink it over the next 5andndash;7 years.

Shows lovely black currant, floral and black licorice notes. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a tight bead of fruit and mineral throughout. Has a long finish. Best after 2009.

A blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Malbec, the nearly outstanding 2003 Puygueraud may be the finest wine this estate has ever produced. A late harvest ensured a deep ruby/purple-tinged wine with terrific ripeness, loads of black fruits, underbrush, incense, and Asian spices. This full, powerful effort should age for a minimum of 10 years.

(Barrel tasting) Good blackberry jam character, with medium to full body, soft tannins and a medium finish. Lovely length to this. Continues to be an excellent value from Bordeaux. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
