Chateau La Croix St Vincent 2005

This wine has some pedigree.  Here's a description taken from the importer's website:

"Chateau La Croix Saint Vincent is the second wine of Chateau De Valois. The estate is part of the original Figeac property and was established in 1862 when the large Figeac property was dismembered."

And the pedigree is matched by its quality.  From the stellar 2005 vintage in Bordeaux, and a blend of 77% merlot, 19% cabernet franc, 3% cabernet sauvignon and 1% malbec, this Pomerol opens to a deliciously ripe aroma of berries.  Good length, tannins and plums are there on the palate.  An enjoyable wine that is well priced.  88 points (7.3/10)

Abv: 13.5%
Price: $51
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
