The 2005 vintage has been slow to evolve, the tell-tale signs that this will be a vintage that will age gracefully for decades. That being said, we have had a handful of 2005 Bordeaux over the last year, and we feel they are showing exceptionally well and are absolutely worth paying attention to.
Lafite Rothschild & their expression of this hallowed vintage is one you won't want to miss. The most elegant of the Firsts in 2005, it is "A wine worthy of superlatives". Follow this over the next 30+ years and you are sure to be handsomely rewarded. This will be one of the longest-lived wines of the year.
"An incredible nose, so subtle with red fruits, mint, minerals, and all sorts of flowers give way to Cohiba cigar tobacco. The palate has such freshness and density, with perfectly polished tannins. Slightly leathery, like a wonderful Hermes bag. What a wine, please leave this for another ten years."

"A wine worthy of superlatives, the 2005 Lafite showed incredible concentration yet a superb balance. The lovely blackcurrant and plum fruit shows a fragrant floral edge, hints of oak spice, and a firm, earthy underpinning. The texture is superbly elegant, with a lovely freshness and a lilting, silky finish, yet it does not lack a tannic grip, and the finish is satisfyingly long. Near perfection. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot with just a drop of Petit Verdot, aged in new casks."
