Château Bernadotte Haut Medoc 2005


SKU 15806


The nose is opulent opening up like a bowl of fresh red fruit: black currents, raspberries and red currents. The mouth is mellow and well rounded. This wine fulfils its potential in the mouth in a gamut of ripe fruit with an evolution and fullness that is extraordinary. The aromatic persistence is of fruit with a well integrated touch of brioche. This is a modern style wine, seductive and voracious. Its length, mark of a great wine, is remarkable. It leaves no one indifferent.

Wine SpectatorTea leaf aromas, with raspberry and blackberry, lead to a medium-to-full body, with soft, silky tannins and a pretty aftertaste. Best after 2008.

Wine AdvocateSpace limitations did not allow complete tasting notes for this Cru Bourgeois, but 2005 is the finest vintage for these wines since 1982. The range of scores for these wines should give readers an idea of just how consistent this vintage is at this level. Given the style of the vintage, most of these wines should be accessible young yet evolve for a decade or more because of their concentration and tannic structure.

Robert Parker, April 2006
