Natalie's Review

Clos Laborie Château Tayac, Prop. Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2005, A.C. Margaux, Bordeaux, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Clos Laborie is the sister property of Château Tayac, a family-owned operation for over four generations. In the 19th century, Clos Laborie was part of Château Desmirail, a highly respected third-growth property. Today, it is a stand-alone site with a 60/40 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot mix. From the great ‘05 vintage, it features aromas of caramel, blueberry and vanilla. Dry, lush and ripe on the palate, it is ably balanced by firm tannins. My note: Classic notes of cassis, blackberry and black plum. Full-bodied and a bit tannic so decant for 1-2 hours if you’re going to drink it now. This vintage (2005) was spectacular and the quality translates through all price ranges. Drink: 2010-2018. 91454 13% XD 750 mL  $42.95 Score: 91/100. March 14, 2009  Full Review
