Chateau Ferran 2005

Yes, as you may have guessed, I like Bordeaux from 2005, and buy as much of it as I can afford.  This wine, consumed over the course of a dinner was very good, only in fairness it probably declined rather than improved with time in the glass.  It has a classic aroma of blackcurrants, with a slightly less classic touch of anise.  Cigar box, pepper and medium length feature on the palate.  This wine's main feature is its immense drinkability, and it does what many Pessac-Leognan wines do, which is to deliver a good wine at a good price.  87 to 88 points.

Abv: 12.5%
Price: $55
