Chateau D’Aurilhac 2005

88+ Points

Cru Bourgeois.  Haut Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

This sort of wine confirms my expectations for 2005, there are going to be some very good moderately priced Chateaux.  Consumed over 3 nights (to give it a bit of oxidation) it’s an intense wine with powerful fleshy core of fruit.  A total lack of herbaceous character, yet still adequate fresh acidity.
