  1. AUSONE 2005 ST EMILION

    Item #: i_350182
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    Wine Advocate: 100
    WINE ADVOCATE 100 POINTS - "The 2005 Ausone is a perfect wine of the vintage. It displays crushed rock, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, stunning purity and richness, and perfect harmony among all of its component parts (acidity, tannin, wood, alcohol and extract). Still youthful, but oh, so promising, this wine should be set aside for another decade and drunk over the following 50-75 years. Drink 2025-2100."

  4. DEFAIX 2005 CHABLIS 1ER CRU LES LYS

    Item #: i_351634
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    The vines here are from southeast facing slopes in a section of Les Lys known as “Clos du Roi” (effectively a monopole of the Defaix estate). The Defaix domaine owns 3.5 hectares of this 5 hectare 1er Cru. The resulting wine is long-lived and displays remarkable finesse and length, a classic Chablis. One often encounters the flavors and aromas of bergamot, acacia and honey in the Les Lys alongside a compelling freshness, a wine of excellent tension. The average age of the vines is 45 years.

  5. DOMAINE DUJAC 2005 VOSNE ROMANEE 1ER CRU MALCONSORTS

    Item #: i_351525
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 93
    BURGHOUND 93 POINTS

    "Exuberantly spicy and notably ripe nose of plum, cassis and violet aromas is evolving quite deliberately. There is exceptionally good richness, volume, power and mid-palate concentration to the mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that terminate in a robust, powerful and driving finish that delivers really lovely length."

  6. GODME 05 BRUT ROMAINES 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_376516
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    2 STARS CHAMPAGNEGUIDE.NET - "As a meunier counterpart to Les Alouettes St-Bets and Les Champs St-Martin, Godmé has bottled this single-vineyard champagne, from a highly calcareous parcel in the village of Villedommange. Its aromas of apple, apricot and guava are ripe and richly fragrant, showing a subtle nuance and complexity that is sure to grow with further time in the cellar. While the fruit is generous and assertive, it's pinned down by prominent notes of chalk, feeling resonant, harmonious and complete on the finish. This is an impressive debut, and it's satisfying to see another high-quality champagne being made entirely from the meunier grape. Last tasted: 11/12."

    Wow, what is going on? This is the second all-Pinot Meunier single vineyard Champagne to make this year’s "best of" list. As with the Mousse "Special Club," this Godme "Les Romaines" is no mere novelty, but rather a wonderfully vinous effort that extends the boundaries of what constitutes greatness in Champagne. Hugues Godmé is the fifth generation of his family to tend vines in Verzenay and like Gilles Dumangin he is another star on the rise in the northern Montagne de Reims.

  7. LA CONSEILLANTE 2005 POMEROL

    Item #: i_353035
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 98
    Wine Spectator: 98
    James Suckling: 98
    JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS - "This really does have a wonderful texture that is reminiscent of great pinot noir while remaining obviously cabernet franc and merlot. It shows a seductive nose of cream, berries, chocolate and flowers. It's full-bodied, very intense and seamless in length. Pure class. Drink now and enjoy but will improve for years ahead."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "Displaying spectacular aromatics of mulberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, a dense ruby/purple color, and sweet floral notes, in the mouth the 2005 La Conseillante is not as broad and powerful as Petrus, Trotanoy, Hosanna or Lafleur, but it is gorgeously silky, elegant and stylish. This medium-bodied, savory wine is a graceful, provocative and compelling Pomerol to drink now and over the next 25 years."

    WINE SPECTATOR 97 POINTS - "This is decadent and wild on the nose, with fresh cèpe, raw steak and wild berry. Full-bodied, with loads of velvety tannins, yet refined and caressing in every way. A beautiful, balanced red. The best young wine ever from this producer. *Highly Recommended*"

  8. LATOUR 2005 PAUILLAC

    Item #: i_345341
    Bottle Size: 750ML
    eROBERT PARKER 98 POINTS: "The 2005 Latour (87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) is a spectacular effort from Château Latour. It has an inky plum/purple color and a gorgeous nose of graphite, crème de cassis, and floral notes with some forest floor in the background. It is full-bodied, super-concentrated, and for my taste, probably one of the two or three most intense, rich, and complex wines of the entire Médoc. The wine has great texture, purity and a finish of close to 40 or 45 seconds. The tannins are surprisingly sweet, even in this large-scaled, masculine wine. Drink it over the next 50+ years."

  10. LEOVILLE LAS CASES 2005 ST JULIEN

    Item #: i_352428
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 96
    Wine Spectator: 97
    James Suckling: 99
    JAMES SUCKLING 99 POINTS - "A stunningly complex and complete nose of flowers, dark fruits, and minerals. Very perfumed and subtle at the same time. The palate is full, yet tight and powerful with perfect tannins and a long, long finish. The quality of the tannins is phenomenal, please leave this alone for ten years. Pull the cork in 2020."

    WINE SPECTATOR 98 POINTS - "Sleek and racy, with black currant and fig fruit laced liberally with a bright iron streak and singed alder notes. This is very tightly coiled, as the fruit seems to be preserved for now, while the cold fireplace character holds sway. A superb energy in reserve gives this more than enough time to wait. Could outlast them all in this vintage."

    WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "This is a prodigious effort. A blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance Merlot and Cabernet Franc (only 37% of the crop qualified for Las Cases), this dense ruby/purple wine has a stunningly pure bouquet of dark fruit, wet rocks, graphite, and subtle background toast/vanillin. Full-bodied, masculine, and very deep and concentrated, this titanic effort is at least 8-10 years away from its plateau of maturity. The Delon family have produced another legend."

  11. LOUIS LATOUR 2005 NUITS SAINT GEORGES

    Item #: i_352984
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    You will be enchanted with this powerful and round wine. It has a great bouquet of liquorice aromas along with more gamey animal aromas. Once on the palate the tannins are mellow and the flavors that come to forth are those of ripe fruits. Great harmony!

  13. SYLVIAN CATHIARD 2005 MALCONSORTS 1ER CRU

    Item #: i_351500
    Bottle Size: 750ml
    Wine Advocate: 97
    ROBERT PARKER 97 POINTS: "I recall tasting the 2005 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts from barrel with Sylvain back in 2007 and thinking something along the lines of “Wow.” And despite being first in the line-up of many older vintages, this still ranks as one of Sylvain’s finest creations. It has a pure and precocious mint-tinged nose that is almost crystalline in its purity, deftly handling the new oak and retaining its youthful zeal. There is a sense of symmetry and precision on the palate – not a hair out of place. The fruit is slightly darker than its ’02 counterpart tasted alongside. The finish offers a gentle crescendo that risks leaving the imbiber stupefied. Give it a few more years, but this is one case where I empathize with infanticide. Drink 2017-2030+ (8/2014)"
