Guiraud 2005, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Sauternes, Bordeaux

"Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish." Wine Spectator 97 Points

Montrose 2005, 0.75L
Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot / Cabernet Franc / Petit Verdot from St. Estephe, Bordeaux

"The Château Montrose 2005 has a quite brilliant bouquet with intense blackberry, cedar and tobacco scents that unfold in compelling fashion – but don’t give too much away. The palate is full-bodied, a Montrose of “architecture” thanks to its vaulted tannin, perfect acidity and immense precision on the long finish. Everything here feel natural and effortless and yet it is clearly a 50+ year old wine. This is a fabulous Montrose, one built like a Bentley." 96 Points Wine Advocate

Nenin 2005, 0.75L
Merlot / Cabernet Franc from Pomerol, Bordeaux

“A complete and sexy wine with very polished and refined tannins yet there’s an energy and posture that gives the wine such intrigue. Buy it.” James Suckling 96 Points

“Very grapey on the nose, with mineral, tarragon and fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with very well-integrated tannins and a light vanilla, berry and milk chocolate aftertaste. Subtle and balanced. The best Nenin in years.” Wine Spectator 93 Points

“A very smooth, rich wine, with a slight touch of pepper from the alcohol. The tannins are huge but submerged by ripe fruit. There's almost Napa-like ripeness, but also delicious acidity.” Wine Enthusiast 90-92 Points

“Very good, yet clear and clean blackcurrant fruit. Nice touch of iron on the palate. Plump, rounded, fleshy and succulent, but it avoids heaviness thanks to the lively acidity. Ripe tannins give structure and there’s a distinct earthiness that is actually quite appealing.” Decanter 91 Points

“Pure, intense black fruit. Rich aromas with a hint of vanilla and violets. Succulent and moreish - tannins are rich and ripe and upright but very come-hither. Delicious.” Jancis Robinson 17.5 Points

Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux

"Tropical fruit aromas, with lemon, apple and hints of toasty coconut. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit, honey and banana flavors. Layered and rich, with a long finish. Needs time. The best white in a long time from this estate." 92 Points Wine Spectator

Rieussec 2005, 0.75L
Sauvignon Blanc / Sémillon from Sauternes, Bordeaux

"The 2005 Rieussec is a blend of 90% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle picked between 23 September and 27 October. It has a fabulous bouquet that is mineral-rich and tensile. The palate repeats its performance from last year: focused, tense, laden with botrytis-rich fruit with a crystalline and sorbet-fresh finish that seals the deal. One of the best releases from the estate in recent years. Tasted April 2016." 97 Points Neal Martin

Daniel-Etienne Defaix Domaine du Vieux Château Chablis Côte de Léchet 2005, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy

"The 2005 Chablis 1er Cru Côte de Léchet is more complex than the Vaillon, unfurling with complex aromas of honeycomb, mandarin oil, fresh mushroom, almond paste and oyster shell. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and gourmand, with a satiny attack, a deep, concentrated core and tangy balancing acids. It's a textural, sapid Chablis that will work well at the table." 93 Points Wine Advocate

Daniel-Etienne Defaix Domaine du Vieux Château Chablis Les Lys 2005, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy

"Dramatic aromas of blanched almonds, beeswax, honey and preserved lemon introduce the 2005 Chablis 1er Cru Les Lys, a full-bodied, textural wine that's rich, concentrated and structured, with a tight-knit core, tangy acids and a stony finish. Like Defaix's other 2005s, it's very much in its prime and will be well worth seeking out when it reaches the marketplace." 93 Points Wine Advocate

Daniel-Etienne Defaix Domaine du Vieux Château Chablis Les Vaillons 2005, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy

"The 2005 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillon is drinking beautifully, wafting from the glass with a pretty bouquet of honey, buttered citrus and confit lemon. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and bright, with a generous, textural attack, vibrant acids and a charming, open-knit profile that belies its evident capacity to age. It will be well worth seeking out when it's released." 92 Points Wine Advocate

Kamen Cabernet Sauvignon 2005, 1.5L
Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma Valley, California

"The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon has put on significant weight since last year. This seems to be a common occurrence in 2005, which do have a more European structural underpinning, but have definitely increased their intensity of fruit as they have aged in cask – always a positive sign. This wine has an inky bluish/purple color to the rim, a sweet nose of white flowers intermixed with black currants, a deep full-bodied mouthfeel, superb purity, plenty of tannin, but it is sweet, integrated, and the wine long (over 40 seconds), with stunning perfume. . ." 95 Points Robert M.
