We were lucky enough to taste the 2005 wines in-situ on their release, and there was only one way to describe them in my mind – balanced perfection. Very deserving indeed of the “Vintage of the Century” title.

2005 yielded wines of wonderful purity and precision of fruit, rich and concentrated yet never heavy, and with tannic structures and acidities matching the core of fruit seamlessly. Brilliantly terroir-specific, these wines reached adolescence at about 10 years old, with most Châteaux showing some development but still much too firm a structure to be consumed at that point. At 16 years old however, they are truly entering their drinking window, and some are positively singing already.

The timing therefore could hardly be any better for us to have secured a parcel of 2005s from three great properties, showing three facets of this perfect vintage. From quintessential Pauillac Château Batailley, with its dark core of fruit and powerful structure, to the opulent, juicy and velvety style of Château Beauregard in Pomerol (a property that benefits from having the Moueix family, of Pétrus fame, backstage) via Château Haut-Bergey, a superb example of the Pessac-Léognan terroir with its cabernet fruit reminiscent of the Médoc but for the roasted coffee and lifted, fresh aromatics one should find here.

In this mixed case you will receive two each of the following wines;

2005 Château Haut-Bergey, Cru Classé Pessac-Léognan
"Charcoal, espresso roast, blackcurrants and spice are all present in this medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, relatively evolved and precocious Haut-Bergey, which is just now attaining its plateau of maturity. Soft tannins and an attractive plushness are followed by a wine capable of drinking well for another decade or more. Drink 2015-2025."
90 pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, June 2015

2005 Château Beauregard, Pomerol
"Notably deep ruby in colour, as with all great 2005s this is still full of fruit and tannin but it is definitely hitting its drinking window. Still fairly subtle on the aromatics at first, but it opens up and draws you in, and has the lifting juicy salinity that is conferred by the Cabernet Franc. Here you get a rich round quality to the fruit that has been less evident in the older wines, completed by the chocolate liquorice slice of Pomerol. Subtle, balanced and will age. Drinking Window 2020 - 2034"
94 pts Jane Anson, Decanter, March 2020

2005 Château Batailley, Cru Classé Pauillac
Batailley has made an excellent Pauillac in 2005 - lots of silky blackcurrant fruit, along with incense, liquorice and spice. Showing real maturity now, but still with noticeable structure and texture.
