Lot #319. Clos Les Lunelles 2005

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 94 RP.
"This is the greatest Côtes de Castillon I have ever tasted. The 2005 Clos les Lunelles is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Inky/purple to the rim, the stunningly flamboyant perfume offers up scents of black fruits, spring flowers, and crushed rocks. The wine hits the palate with unbelievable concentration, full-bodied power, beautifully integrated acidity, tannin, wood, and alcohol, a layered, multidimensional mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts for nearly 45 seconds. This superb achievement is a tour de force in winemaking. From a 25-acre estate owned by Gérard and Chantal Perse (Michel Rolland is the consultant), it is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Yields were kept at a low 20 hectoliters per hectare, which is unheard of for such a humble appellation as well as terroir." Wine Advocate # 176, Apr 2008
