Chateau Destieux St. Emilion Grand Cru 2005 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

$89.00 $79.99

Rated 94 points from The Wine Advocate; eRobertParker.com issue #219 June, 2015:
“A well-known and consistent wine from the estate of Christian Dauriac, this big, plump, opulent 2005 is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from this estate. It is full-bodied and multi-dimensional, with a big, juicy texture and loads of plum, blackcurrant, spicy oak and minerality. Full and rich, with the tannins just beginning to show some resolution and better integration, this is a big-time sleeper of the vintage that should drink well for another 15-20 years. Drink:2015-2035”
Rated 92 points from Wine Spectator; June 30th, 2008:
“Very pretty mineral, blackberry and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with supervelvety tannins and a long aftertaste of ripe fruit and cream. Best after 2013.” –JS
