    2005- vintage of the century: THe weather was just perfect throughout the growing season, which explains why 2005 is an altogether outstanding year.
    The red wines are very pure, powerful and concentrated. These are great wines with superb ageing potential, and are well worth waiting for. Patience will be richly rewarded.
