  2. Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi) Brunello di Montalcino 2005
    WE92
    VM94+
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points! The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Annata opens with a fabulous, expressive bouquet of freshly cut roses, spices and raspberries, all of which carry through to the palate, where the wine reveals impeccable class and elegance, with just enough fruit to balance its angular, lean structure. Still, the 2005 is surprisingly round and harmonious for a young vintage of Biondi Santi, in fact, I had a hard time putting the glass down! Though medium in body, the wine offers gorgeous persistence and a long, exceptionally pure finish. I expect the 2005 Brunello to shut down in bottle, but readers who have an opportunity to taste the wine should not hesitate. Biondi-Santi did not produce a Riserva in 2005; instead the best of the fruit that is normally destined for the Riserva plus a selection of old vines near the heart of the estate were used for the 2005 Brunello. This is one of the unqualified successes of the vintage. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media Learn More
  3. Ponsot Morey St. Denis 1er Cru Cuvee des Alouettes 2005
    BH91
    WA90-92
    VM90-92
    $159.98
    Availability:Out of Stock
    This is very ripe, indeed so ripe that it stops just short of surmaturité yet the jammy aromas of black cherry and raspberry remain fresh and bright, leading to mouth coating and exceptionally rich and velvety flavors that are quite forward but are supported by almost invisible tannins underneath all of the palate saturating sap. This has grand cru size and weight if not the sheer depth and this is a harmonious and balanced effort. Very impressive and recommended. Outstanding. - Allen Meadows, Burghound #29 Learn More
  4. Domaine de Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reservee 2005 3Liter
    WS94
    WA92
    $329.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points- "Shows gutsy blackberry and fig fruit up front, with notes of pepper, licorice, Turkish coffee and garrigue. The superlong finish lets roasted herb and beef notes check in, while gaining even more depth as this airs. Not quite as much range as 2003 and 2004, but has the intense grip of the vintage and should cruise in the cellar for two decades. Best from 2009 through 2028."-Wine Spectator

  5. Beausejour Duffau Lagarosse 2005 6Liter
    WS92
    WA94
    $699.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points- While no one will confuse the 2005 with this estate’s prodigious 1990, it is an outstanding effort from one of St.-Emilion’s finest terroirs. In terms of potential, the vineyard is exceeded only by Ausone, Pavie and Belair for micro-climate and exposition. A beautiful dark ruby/purple color is accompanied by an ethereal nose of blueberry liqueur, spring flowers, melted licorice, raspberries, and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied with good acidity, sweet but high tannin, a broad mouthfeel, and admirable elegance as well as freshness, this beauty should age easily for 25+ years.

  6. Cheval Blanc 2005 Magnum
    WS97
    WA100
    $1,699.98
    Availability:In Stock
    100 points! The 2005 from Cheval Blanc is a quintessentially elegant, beautiful, deep bluish/ruby-colored wine from St.-Emilion, with raspberry, blueberry, and floral notes, impressive density, great precision, freshness and purity. Full-bodied, but extremely light on its feet, I don’t mean to gush, but it is super-intense, rich and just so meticulously crafted! This is another fabulous wine and a perfect expression for this vintage. It is difficult to forget the gorgeous blueberry and raspberry fruit, full body, sweet tannin, a multi-layered texture, and purity and palate presence of this stunning wine. Drink it over the next 20 years. P.S. In 2005, this was 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot.-Wine Advocate June, 2015

  7. Gravner Rosso Breg Venezia Giulia 2005
    VM95
    $139.98
    Availability:In Stock
    95 Points!   Vivid full ruby-purple. Blackberry, violet and aromatic herbs on the nose, along with some flinty minerality and a hint of blueberry pie. Enters bright and juicy, then turns surprisingly plush and sweet in the mouth, with an enticingly wild quality to the concentrated blue and red berry flavors. Boasts terrific density of fruit and silky texture, not to mention harmonious acidity. Finishes suavely tannic and extremely long with noteworthy clarity and cut. An absolutely knockout Pignolo: very well done. Fermented in amphoras with indigenous yeasts and no temperature control. The wine spent five months in buried amphoras, then five years in large oak barrels.

    VM92
    $28.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points!  Rich and broad, with peach, mango, nectarine and slate aromas and flavors mingling together. The structure is covered for now, but this is so well-balanced it's almost seamless. Fine length and very clean on the finish.  - Wine Spectator

    $24.98

    90 Points!  Dark in color, with lots of blackberry, mineral, licorice and a hint of toasty oak. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Balanced and generous, with lots of fruit underneath. Best after 2011. - James Suckling, Wine Spectator

  10. Mouton Rothschild Pauillac 2005
    WS98
    WA98
    VM98
    $869.98
    Availability:In Stock
    98 Points! The 2005 Château Mouton-Rothschild is a deeply impressive First Growth. It has been blessed with a sensational nose that comes racing out of the blocks with audacious scents of black fruit, cedar, smoke and pencil box (Philippe Dhalluin mentioned that the signature smokiness/fireside hearth was tangible in around 80% of the vats during élevage). There is a sense of bravura here, of aristocracy. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous black fruit, perhaps beginning to soften in texture, one or two years off its plateau. There are layers and layers of black fruit intermingling with graphite and black pepper, and it wisely reins everything in on the finish that is more classic in style and in keeping with the vintage. If you are fortunate enough to have this wine in your cellar, even though those tannins are starting to be abraded by time, afford it another five or six years. Tasted August 2016. - Neal Marting, Wine Advocate

  11. Pichon Baron Pauillac 2005
    $199.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94+ Points! Dark red-ruby. Multidimensional nose offers deep aromas of currant, cedar, coffee, tobacco and minerals. The palate offers a rare combination of sweetness, energy and depth, with superb grip and a layered texture to the flavors of plum, cedar, tobacco and minerals. The finish features sweet, noble tannins and outstanding length. I find this more complete and ultimately more exciting than the 2003, but this will need at least a decade of cellaring. (The 2006 was in the middle of a racking and difficult to taste, but this wine conveyed the same impression of ripeness, energy and structure that my sample did last spring.) - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

  12. Faustino I Rioja Gran Reserva 2005
    WS93
    DEC93
    $29.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! Fresh and lively, this red shows bright fruit and spice flavors, with cherry, berry, vanilla and anise notes that mingle over light tannins and orange peel acidity. Harmonious and graceful, expressive and alluring. Drink now. - Thomas Matthews, Wine Spectator

  13. Rayne Vigneau Sauternes 2005
    WS92
    WA92
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 points! Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château de Rayne-Vigneau has a waxy, dried pineapple, honey and petrol-tinged bouquet that gains vigor in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with plenty of botrytis: very harmonious with honeyed fruit laced with dried orange peel, quince and ginger. This builds extremely well in the mouth and fans out in glorious fashion on the finish. This is an excellent Sauternes that should give 20 or 30 years of pleasure.-Wine Advocate June, 2015
