Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Chateau Des Laurets Merlot Blend 2005 Wine Review
The terrific 2005 vintage for power and depth shows in even the most affordable Bordeaux wines like this one. This wine is an incredibly good value with notes of blackberry, black plum, cassis. An excellent wine to serve at a dinner party or when you're trying to impress a first date. It's tannic so decant for 1-2 hours if you're not going to age it. 4.4/5 Merlot Blend food pairings: mushrooms, cheddar cheese, goose, cornish hen, sourdough bread.
