Flowers, cherries, espresso and mint create the aromatics. On the palate, the medium-bodied wine offers a soft, polished, fruity, cherry dominated profile with a silky fresh finish. Drink it young, or give it a few years of age for more earthiness. Drink from 2022-2032.

Dark in color, the wine is rich, deep, powerful and intense. The fruit, herbs, and freshness are all there in the right place. The lift in the finish keeps it interesting.

2005 Girolate  (Bordeaux) 92
Licorice, coffee bean, blackberry jam, blue fruit, black cherry, truffle, earth and smoke get you going. On the palate, the wine is rich, round, fat, deep, long and with low acidity, finishing with sweet, lush, silky, black cherry liqueur sensations. If you can find a bottle, this would show better than many wines with a much higher level of classification. On the one hand, this could be the best example of a of very good wine made from a humble terroir I've ever tasted. On the other hand, it's a lot of money for a generic Bordeaux.
