From the cellar: Unearthed yet another from the famous 05 stash. It was lovely and a treat but also not thrilling. Imagine a very, very good bottle of Merlot. Then imagine paying for it, cellaring it, and opening it up half a decade later. Expectations will probably run a little high.
Layered, yes, but not mysterious or wondrous. Smoothed out with air. A most appealing sipper and OK with dinner, if a touch one-dimensional for a grand-cru.
Price: No record. Expensive. When Bordeaux finally makes it to BC it’s rarely a budget item.
Market Liquidity: Lovely but maybe not worth the bother.
