Poor growing seasons over the past three years, combined with what so many oenophiles claimed was an exceptional year for wine, the 2005 Bordeaux look better and better
And according to Financial Times
wine expert Jancis Robinson, the 2005s are good at both ends of the price spectrum. Robinson calls these wines "by far the greatest bordeaux vintage I have been lucky enough to taste." At a recent London tasting, the favorite first growth was the Chateau Margeaux. Chateau Haut-Brion and Latour followed closely behind.
