Chateau Lavergne-Dulong 2005 wine review by (PB)
This Bordeaux Superieur is a deep purple hue with ripe blackberry and plum in a very nice bouquet.
In the mouth there is a rich burst of cinnamon that is wonderful but fleeting with bread and tight flavors with perky tannins.
After 1/2 hour of breathing this is a big wine and a great value ($14)! Milk chocolate foundation holds perfumey aromas. White pepper is pronounced on the palate with gripping structure that needs a couple more years in the bottle. the finish lingers on. This is a buy more and lay it down a couple years for a real treat! Raise a glass!
