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. 92 Points
