2005 Château Bernadotte, Haut-Médoc
Under the same ownership as Pichon-Lalande, we have noted a greater
intensity and refinement in Bernadotte of recent vintages. The 2005 is an
assemblage of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Merlot and 3% Cabernet
Franc. 15% is aged in new oak for a period of twelve months.
The aromas reveal currant, fragrant red fruit and duskier blackberry.
Ample on the palate, gently mouthfilling, there is an attractive supple
accent here with pleasing cool ripeness and fleshy, stone-fruit
succulence. Well-balanced, and well-made, this is a reliable haut-médoc,
with more than a hint of class. It will prove very appealing in its youth.
