($70-$100) Good bright red-ruby. Subdued but pure aromas of currant, dark chocolate and sexy oak. Moderately sweet, medium-bodied and vinous, with ripe acidity and a floral element providing mid-palate lift. Still a bit medicinal and unevolved, but this has the serious structure to develop slowly and well in bottle. Finishes long and firm.

Good fresh zesty wine without too much dry tannin. Energy and fleshy.

A sexy, style of wine from the Lurtons at Brane-Cantenac, this wine (a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc) has a stunning nose of forest floor, licorice, blackcurrants, plums and spring flowers. Soft tannin, full-bodied opulence and beautifully textured, lush richness, make for a brilliant wine from this large, 180-acre vineyard. In spite of the wine's stunning forward fragrance and lushness, the color still looks as if it is 3-4 years old, rather than a decade. This is a big-time winner in 2005 and should drink well for at least another 25+ years.

Shows mineral and blackberry aromas, with hints of licorice. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, smoky, earthy, meaty and fruity aftertaste. Long and stylish. Very refined and beautiful.

Amazing wine. Perfect to drink at this time, perfect drink right after the bottle has been opened. Only concern was that it colored the glass a bit.

Decanted for 5 hours. Gorgeous dark purple, bright and beautiful. Knockout nose which developed an entrancing perfume, difficult to actually drink for fear of reducing the source of this fragrance! On the palate, delicious, complex melange of fruit, sweet tannin, light toast and spice, all in balance. It becomes its own fragrance. Hard to resist now given its showing with decanting, this '05 has all the world ahead of it for its future.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
