Chateau Pedesclaux 2005

90+ points

Pauillac. 13%

A bit closed like so many 2005 at the moment (drink the more accessible 2006). But fine, lovely relaxed balance. It’s ripe claret as 2005 is but without any obvious weight, the ripeness is just part of the whole not a standout feature. This is a characteristic of a number of fine classed growths in 2005 and 2000. Whereas is 2009 I suspect the ripeness will usually standout.
