"Superexciting aromas of crushed berry, coffee and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, very velvety and a long, long finish. Gorgeous. Almost classic quality." (WS)

"As usual, La Gomerie’s 2005 is a sexy, dense plum/purple-tinged effort. From a 7-acre, 32-year old site planted with 100% Merlot, it exhibits a sumptuous bouquet of white chocolate, roasted coffee, blackberries, black cherries, graphite, and toasty oak. This is a modern-styled, decadently rich St.-Emilion, but because of the vintage’s higher acidity and more tannic structure, this offering possesses a more classic framework than usual. A sensational wine, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years, and age beautifully for 15-20." (WA)

"($125-$160) Good ruby-red. Extravagantly ripe aromas of plum, game, smoke, bitter chocolate and musky espresso. Broad, fat and sweet, with a compelling mouthfilling texture. Wonderfully pliant wine, finishing with uncommonly sweet tannins and terrific breadth and length. A great vintage for this property." (VM)
