Chateau La. Bienfaisance Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2005

An amazing buy in a 2005 Bordeaux, just tasted this again last week…a very silky, sexy Right Bank Bordeaux. Drink now, or hold for a decade!

92pts Robert parker

“A stunning effort from this property in St.-Christophe des Bardes, this 25-acre vineyard is planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Made in a flamboyant style for the vintage, it reveals a dense purple color along with an expressive, ostentatious nose of sweet cherry liqueur intermixed with creme de cassis, toast, spring flowers, incense, melted licorice, and chocolate. Full-bodied with high but sweet, velvety tannins, it is already approachable, but promises to develop more nuances over the next decade. It should last for 20+ years. Kudos to the proprietor and his wine consultant, Stephane Derenoncourt.

Regular price is $40, on sale June 22nd to 28th for $33.99
