A more deeply pitched and very cool nose offers up very ripe dark berry fruit, truffles, spice hints and a touch of the sauvage, the latter of which can also be found on the rich, full and sweet medium weight plus flavors that deliver fine punch and precision on the delineated and exceptionally pure mineral infused finish. While always a fine wine in the Rousseau stable, 2005 is one of the best vintages that I have seen and it will age well. 94/2017+
