Chateau Le Bourdieu 2005

The great thing about an exceptional vintage in Bordeaux like 2005 is that seemingly no matter where you look, gems are uncovered.  This wine (a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon and 50% merlot) had an aroma of blackcurrant fruit and a touch of herbs, and a palate notable for its amazing length - more than 20 seconds by my count.  It had also had fleshy fruit on the palate, and what I would describe as a slight green peppercorn note.  A very pleasant wine, drinking well now.  88 to 89 points.
