Significantly better from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2005 Rauzan-Gassies appears to be the finest wine this estate has ever produced. Dense purple-hued with a beautiful perfume of camphor, creme de cassis, licorice, bay leaf, and incense, it is a full-bodied, stunningly concentrated, broad, rich Margaux with lovely integrated tannins. This backward 2005 will handsomely repay cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2014andndash;2030+.

All boats rise in a vintage like 2005, and the notoriously sleepy second Rauzan-Gassies turned out to be one of the surprises at our tasting. It starts with a dark scent of tobacco and then cassis pours out of the middle of the wine. At first, the fruit seems a little weak in the finish, but the center feels lush and silken, with air, the pebbly tannins extend a sleek plummy flavor. Youandrsquo;ll get more from the super-seconds, but this is a fine wine on its own terms.

Good full ruby. Blackberry pastille, licorice and violet on the nose. Juicy, moderately dense and dry; rather powerful for this Margaux, perhaps a function of extraction. Concentrated but distinctly dry-edged on the back, with tough tannins.

multi-textured cuvee boasting an inky/purple color as well as a sweet perfume of camphor

(Barrel tasting) Plum and berry character with hints of toasted oak. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity finish. Can't see how this will be as great as 2000.
