Chateau Patache D'Aux 2005 wine review by (PB)
This Cru Bourgeoise from Bordeaux is a rather intense black cherry hue with a gorgeous bouquet of big black berry pie aromas, blueberry touches with ample pie spice and cigar box highlights. Nice!
Palate--Medium bodied with toast and berry fruit and some nice cedar notes at mid-palate. It is all nearly integrated but another 1-2 years would improve what is a pretty darn good wine.
This is a $16 snatch from the hallowed vintage of 05 and I would love to find another and hold it another year just to see what the extra time would do. Another nice find and a good value so raise a glass!
