2005 vintage was considered one of the best in decades for the Bordeaux. The prices of their top wines went through the roof.
Therefore, it's a great thing when you find "value" from that vintage. And, it's worth to wait few years for wines like that. I can compare, since I first tasted this wine as soon as it was released. It was approachable then, but I knew it will develop even better in the bottle.
Seven years later, Château Haut-Vigneau was a silky, medium body wine, with smooth tannins and perfectly balanced acidity. Lots of fruit reminded me of ripe plums and black currant, with tiny bit of smoke, white pepper and all spice. A superb, contemporary wine of amazing value (it sells under $20).
Grapes for Château Haut-Vigneau were harvested by hand, and underwent a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats. It then aged in barrels for 15 months and was fined with egg-whites before bottling.
Aged in oak
