Chateau Les Hauts-Conseillantes 2005

So, here's another Bordeaux wine review.  Fortunately, it will not be at all obvious which wines I like.  Somewhat frustratingly, I couldn't find many details about this wine on the internet.  Maybe a reader can help me out.  And that's a pity, because it's a cracker.  It has that combination of length and power, with a slight rusticity, that together, makes it just so drinkable for me.  Red plums and spices emerge from the glass, with significant length accompanied with structure and tannins on the palate.  A very drinkable wine, that just demands to be drunk now, but will keep too.  Yet another good wine from 2005 in Bordeaux.  91 points (7.6/10)
