2005 Château Pierre de Lune  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

Nice wine, soft, silky, polished with the right amount of licorice, cherry and truffle too. This is close to fully ready, so if you are waiting, wait no longer.

What a pleasure to taste. Silky, almost luxurious in nature on the palate. The fresh sweet, dark fruits were in full force on nose as well, accompanied by licorice, dark chocolate and smoke. The endnote on the finish continued the theme. Popped and poured, this was just great from the moment the wine hit the glass, through to the last drop.

Mature, with an earthy, truffle, cocoa, black cherry, licorice and smoke filled nose, this round, open wine is ready to drink.

Ready to drink, this charming, elegant, medium bodied wine is all about the truffle and fresh cherry notes, with plush textures. As good as this is, it's not a wine for aging. I'm going to drink my remaining bottles over the next 5 years.

This is described as eating perfectly ripe, sweet, polished blackberries with drops of licorice and chocolate off your table. There is not a hard edge to be found in this sexy, elegant, stylish wine. With a very small production, this will become very hard to find.

Light in color and fruit, with simple red fruits, spice and earth, this needs to be drunk up sooner than later.
