Robert Parker 93 pts – Wine Spectator 93 pts

The Van Neipperg Family has been growers and wine producers since the 12th century. The Van Neipperg Family are very determined in making holistic fine wines based on a rigorous methodology and a careful observation of the vines. This wine is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc showing notes of cedar, leather, red plums, sweet spice, white pepper, coffee and very good extraction of fruit and color. The wine is dense, structured, complex and medium to full bodied on the palate displaying ripe tannins accompanied by sublime fruit and excellent acidity. This is the classic vintage of 2005, which has been described as the one of the best in hisory. The wine is drinking well now, but could age for up to 30 years. It spent 18 months in French oak barrels (with 80% being new). Alcohol: 13.80 Acidity: 2.92 PH: 3.69
