Chateau La Fleur Pichon 2005 wine review by (PB)

Grand Vin De Bordeaux from the Lussac St. Emilion: Gorgeous ruby hue with a tinge of purple with sweet aromas of plum pudding and jammy blackberry on the nose.

Palate--Steelly front palate but very tight and a touch tannic.

It lightened up a bit with some air but cedar nose was all it had to offer. Either shallow or really needed to be breathed longer but I believe it is just shallow which is why it was $14. Disappointing after a great start. Not worth seeking out but raise a glass of the 05 Bordeaux!
