2005 Bordeaux

DSC_2973a

2005 Château Bonnet, AC Bordeaux

A bottle that a friend brought over for dinner. Always a pleasure to drink 2005 Bordeaux. Ripe, round, supple...balanced with a hint of sweetness. The cynic in me says that it's a bit of residual sugar left in to sweeten the palates of neophytes, but..........it's not entirely unpleasant. Good to see the quality of 2005 consistent all across the board. Classified Growths still sitting in the cellar, biding their time. Five more years? Ten?
