Chateau De Virecourt 2005 wine review by (PB)
At $13, this Bordeaux from the fabled vintage was a must buy. It has a ruby hue with chocolate and big berry aromas with deep spice and pine.
Palate--Wow--what a disappointment; watery, steely bread with little or no fruit and quick finish which in this case is a blessing.
This wine began superbly with a wonderful bouquet but gave up the ghost in the aromas. Pass it up.
