Les Piliers de Maison Blanche 2005

This is yet another good 2005 Bordeaux, and a blend of 70% merlot and 30% cabernet franc.  It has an aroma of ripe berries and tobacco.  On the palate, there are tannins and good length.  Perhaps the mid palate is not as full as I would have liked, but I found it hard to put the glass down.  Utterly drinkable.  88 points (7.3/10).

Abv: 13.5%
Price: around $50
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
