The Diary - August 2009

2005 Claret 14/08/2009 (TNB)

A friend was wanting to have a look at a range of the 2005's. Of course, we had some older wine after.

The wines I liked best at least from the Medoc were in that old-fashioned, not too extracted or oaked, fairly high-toned style: the Trois Chardons and the Haut Bages Liberal in particular. Properties doing this are becoming pretty rare though.
