Chateau Clauzet 2005

Yet another excellent wine from the 2005 vintage.  This wine, from a producer I'd not previously tried, had an aroma of spices and blackcurrant, and a palate with length, blackfruits, tannins and good structure.  I really enjoyed this wine.  A blend of 55% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and the remaining 10% cabernet franc and petit verdot.  89 to 90 points.

Abv: 13%

  2. Thanks guys; and agreed that Perrier is a good palate cleanser, though one of these days I'd like to try a few mineral waters together blind, to be sure! Sadly I've already done that exercise with bottled water :-)

    Cheers
